MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A man who parked his car right outside the front door of a western Wisconsin sheriff’s office was arrested Sunday afternoon on suspicion of driving under the influence — his eighth such offense.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says a state trooper was called to the Burnett County Sheriff’s Department in Siren to check on the driver of a vehicle, which was parked right outside with its doors and hood all opened.
The trooper soon noticed that the driver, a 49-year-old Shell Lake man, appeared intoxicated. He was arrested after failing a field sobriety test, and taken to an area hospital for a blood draw.
WCCO does not typically identify criminal suspects until they have been formally charged.
