Suspect in disturbance faces 3rd OWI charge, sheriff says

A Madison man suspected in a disturbance in Sauk County is facing his third drunken driving charge this week, officials said.

The Sauk County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a report of a disturbance Sunday on Bluff Road in the town of Merrimac at about 11:30 p.m. The suspect left the area before law enforcement members arrived.

A deputy spotted a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle on Highway 113 near County Road DL and stopped the car.

The driver, 27-year-old Steven Skuldt, exhibited signs of impairment, the report said. After field sobriety testing, Skuldt was arrested on suspicion of third-offense operating while intoxicated.

The sheriff’s office said Skuldt was also charged with second-offense possession of THC, possession of cocaine and criminal damage to property as a result of the disturbance on Bluff Road.

He was taken to the Sauk County Jail.
