A Madison man was charged with felony drunken driving after officials said he was driving on a county highway in Springdale on a tire rim.
The Dane County Sheriff's Office said Ernest Newel, 39, was arrested on suspicion of fifth-offense operating while intoxicated Friday.
According to the report, a citizen reported an impaired motorist to the department at about 10:39 p.m. The caller told authorities a vehicle was driving on the rim of a tire that had blown out on County Highway J.
A deputy stopped the vehicle near County Highway G, the report said.
Newel was also cited on suspicion of inattentive driving and expired registration. He was taken to Dane County Jail.
