Lynn M. Voight, 45, Shawano, was charged with a fourth drunken driving offense, operating after revocation and identity theft.
She is accused of giving her sister’s name to the officer who pulled her over and asked for identification.
At about 3 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Nick Traeger was westbound on Green Tree Road in Clintonville when a passing eastbound vehicle with a loud muffler failed to dim its high beams, according to the criminal complaint.
Traeger made a traffic stop. The woman driving the car said she did not have a driver’s license, so Traeger asked her to write her name down on a pad of paper. She reportedly wrote down “Leanne Winker.”
After Voight failed the field sobriety tests, Traeger found her purse in the vehicle. A photo on an ID matched Voight’s appearance, and Voight said she had given the deputy her sister’s name because she did not want to get in trouble.
According to court records, Voight had three prior drunken driving convictions in December 1993, January 2007 and April 2008, when her license was revoked and not reinstated.
A preliminary breath test indicated Voight had a 0.103 blood-alcohol level.
