A Wild Rose man was arrested after he drove his vehicle off the road in the town of Lind.
Michael A. Farmer, 50, is charged with a fourth drunken driving offense.
At 7:17 p.m. Saturday, March 12, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Kyle Wiskirchen responded to a crash reported on Draeger Road in Lind.
When he arrived, Wiskirchen found a truck that had gone off the road and into the grass. Its engine was still running.
The driver, identified as Farmer, was in the car, his eyes closed. Wiskirchen asked him if he was OK, and he asked to be taken to the VA hospital. According to the criminal complaint, Farmer said he did not know where he was, how he got there or where he was going.
Wiskirchen reported that Farmer refused to participate in field sobriety tests and refused to take a preliminary blood test. Blood samples were taken at the hospital.
Farmer was previously convicted of drunken driving offenses in January 1994, July 1995 and January 2013.
He was released on a $2,000 signature bond with the condition that he comply with the Soberlink alcohol monitoring program.
