John W. Nero, 39, Waupaca, was charged with a sixth offense of operating while intoxicated.
Shortly after 11:30 p.m. Sunday, July 6, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Bryan Strobusch advised State Trooper Kendi Linjer that there was a car swerving on Churchill Street.
Strobusch then asked dispatch to run a records check on the license plate. Dispatch reported that the registration was expired and the driver was suspended.
The vehicle then pulled into the Churchill Street gas station and drove up onto the grass, Strobusch reported.
According to the criminal complaint, Nero’s speech was slurred and he stumbled while taking the walk-and-turn test.
Linjer performed a preliminary breathalyzer test, which indicated he had a 0.1 blood-alcohol level.
Nero was convicted of his fifth drunken driving offense in October 2011. He was sentenced to one year in jail, placed on three years of probation and his license revoked for three years.
