MIDDLETON, Wis. - A Seymour man faces his fourth drunken driving charge after being seen Wednesday night driving down the wrong side of the road in Middleton, police said.
A Middleton police officer observed a vehicle just before midnight that was driving left of the center line on Terrace Avenue for about one block, according to a release.
The vehicle did not stop at a stop sign and the officer conducted a traffic stop, officials said.
The driver, 38-year-old Sam W. Utke, of Seymour, was slurring his speech and smelled of intoxicants, police said.
Following field sobriety tests, Utke was arrested on a tentative charge of fourth-offense operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
Utke refused to provide a blood sample, so a search warrant was obtained, officials said.
Utke was also cited for operating left of the center line, according to the release.
