7 / 30 Woman Charged With OWI While Children are in Car

Jackson Chief of police Jed Dolnick informs WBKV News on an update of one of his department’s notable incidents that happened this month.  On July 12 at 8:15 PM, Officer Henning stopped a 43 year old Ft. Akinson woman for erratic driving. While talking to her, he noticed an open bottle of beer tucked next to her seat and that she smelled of intoxicants. He also noticed  inside the vehicle were three children, ages 4, 7, and 10, none of whom were belted in. A check of her record revealed a prior OWI conviction plus a new OWI arrest in June. The woman failed field tests and had a PBT test of  point 21%. She was arrested for what could be her third offense, with a penalty enhancer because of the children being in the vehicle. She was also cited for open intoxicants and for not having the children buckled in.
