Three Drunk Drivers Arrested Last Week

The Whitefish Bay Police Department arrested three drunk drivers last week.

  • A 34-year-old Milwaukee woman was taken into custody for her second drunken driving offense on Lake Drive at Oakland Avenue early Saturday morning. Police pulled her over at 12:21 a.m. after her vehicle was clocked at 47 mph in the 30 mph zone. Her blood alcohol content measured 0.16, which is double the legal limit.
  • A drunk driver operating whose blood alcohol content was nearly three times the legal limit was pulled over after driving erratically in the 4500 block of Wilson Drive at 1:23 a.m. Monday. The vehicle also had expired plates. The male driver was cited for OWI after an Intoximeter test revealed his blood alcohol content measured 0.23.
  • A 23-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested for parking his vehicle in the 5500 block of Bay Ridge Avenue and fleeing into yards. Police located the man, arrested him for prowling, and brought him to the police station. The Milwaukee man was issued citations for OWI and prowling. The next morning, a resident in the 200 block of Lexington reported finding the man's shirt, keys and wallet in some nearby bushes.
