Police smelled an odor of intoxicants and saw a near-empty bottle of vodka in the passenger seat, after an accident on Mormon Coulee Road over the weekend.

Davis

Aaron Davis blew through a red light at around 50 mph, collided with an SUV and put that driver in the hospital, around 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

A La Crosse County Sheriff’s Deputy, who was nearby, rushed to Davis’ car, and found the Onalaska man smelled like alcohol and found the bottle of vodka.

The 42 year old was taken to Gundersen Health System for a blood draw and charged with his sixth OWI offense.


Also, a La Crosse woman is facing her fourth OWI charge, after a weekend arrest. 

Colleen Kjos was pulled over Saturday night, after she failed to move over while passing a stopped emergency vehicle on Highway 53. 

Kjos was taken to jail, after a state trooper determined that she was driving while impaired.

    When will the State of Wisconsin get serious about drunk driving? How many more people need to die or be seriously injured for life. Remember, 1 OWI probably means the person drove drunk 30 other times and just was not caught. I shudder to think how many times a person who has 6 OWI’s on record has driven drunk. A person who does not learn after the first OWI has a serious problem and, by default, so do the sober drivers who are put at risk.

    Correction. The statistic I found is that a person drives drunk about 80 times before finally getting caught for 1st offence OWI. If you believe the statistic, this one man with 6 OWI’s drove drunk 480 times.

    27 people die everyday in America by drunk drivers. Scores of others are injured, and scores more suffer property damage to their vehicles or other property. If you don’t learn after 1 OWI, you are seriously in need of treatment and jail time. Get serious Wisconsin!
