11/8 First Week of November Quiet for West Bend Police

The first week of November is off to a fairly quiet start for the West Bend Police Department. Lieutenant Michael Hartwell tells WBKV News that officers handled two separate OWI calls in the same neighborhood on Tuesday. The first happened at just before one am at seventh and Washington. Police pulled over a car driven by a 55 year old man from Racine after he was observed deviating lanes at a fast speed. He was given a field sobriety test and failed. He was issued a citation for his first offense OWI and released. The second happened Tuesday night at 9:05pm at Washington and 18th. A car driven by a 26 year old man from Lomira was stopped for an equipment violation. Upon questioning, the officer detected a strong odor of alcohol. The man admitted to having some drinks. He was given a breath test and registered a point zero eight. The man had two previous OWI convictions with a prohibitive alcohol order. He was arrested on a third offense OWI along with violations of driving with a revoked license and for failure to have an ignition interlock device properly installed.
