Drugs Discovered During OWI Arrest

A 38-year-old West Bend woman was arrested for second offense OWI after a deputy stopped her for traveling 114 mph on U.S. 45. The incident occurred just after 1 a.m. when the deputy locked radar on the woman’s vehicle south of Badger Road in the town of Kewaskum. While catching up to the driver, the deputy also observed the vehicle deviating from the travel lane, including traveling left of center.

The deputy observed numerous signs of impairment and quickly developed probable cause for arrest. A search of the vehicle resulted in additional cites for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. Additional citations are likely forthcoming pending toxicology results from a blood test.
