Police: Man drank 18 beers, found asleep in crashed car
A 20-year-old Madison man was cited Wednesday on suspicion of a second drunken driving offense on Madison’s east side.
Madison police said a sergeant came across a car in a ditch off South Stoughton Road shortly after midnight. The sergeant found the driver asleep behind the wheel. The car was not running and its lights were off.
The car had sustained front-end damage and the airbags had deployed, according to the report. The sergeant woke the driver, 20-year-old Gustavo R. Delarosa-Viades, who reportedly told police that he had consumed 18 beers before the crash.
Delarosa-Viades was cited on suspicion of second-offense operating while intoxicated, operating while revoked and operating without insurance.
