The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy pulled over Carrie Jo Rosin, 52, around 8:42 Tuesday night as she was driving on Hwy. 12 near Castle Mound Road in the Town of Alma.

Rosin refused field sobriety testing at the Jackson County Jail. She was booked for her sixth OMVI and operating a motor vehicle while revoked.
