BELOIT, Wis. — Rock County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested John C. Falk for his seventh OWI offense after responding to a report of him driving around a yard in his truck on 6319 W Plymouth Church Road and getting stuck around 5 a.m. on Saturday.

Officers said they first responded to a traffic complaint. The person said a male, later identified as Falk, was seen entering into their shed and taking a shovel out to attempt to get his vehicle unstuck.
