Janesville police said a 52-year-old Janesville man faces his fifth charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated after being pulled over early Thursday morning.

The incident happened just before 1:30 a.m. Thursday near the intersection of Mount Vernon Avenue and N. Huron Drive.

According to police, an officer stopped Timothy Graesslin for an expired registration near that intersection.

Police said once the officer made contact with Graesslin, the office detected the odor of intoxicants on his breath, and Graesslin admitted he had been drinking.  Police arrested Graesslin after a field sobriety test indicated that Graesslin was impaired. He was taken to the Rock County Jail.
