A 51-year-old man faces a felony drunken driving charge.
Neil H. Schulke, Waupaca, is charged with his fifth offense of operating while intoxicated.
At about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, Waupaca County Deputy Kyle Wiskirchen was dispatched to State Highway 49 near Silver Lake Lanes in Scandinavia.
A 911 caller had reported a truck almost ran him off the road, and it was currently parked behind his vehicle.
When Wiskirchen arrived at the scene, he reported Schulke could barely stand and was holding onto his truck’s brushguard. The deputy described Schulke’s speech as slurred.
The 911 caller told Wiskirchen he had been driving northbound on State 49 when an oncoming pickup truck in the wrong lane forced him off the road.
He said he turned and saw the truck had stopped in front of the bowling alley.
According to the criminal complaint, Schulke refused to perform the field sobriety tests.
Schulke has also been cited for failure to take sobriety tests after arrest and for operating left of the center line.
Schulke was previously convicted of drinking and driving offenses in January 1992, March 1995, November 1998 and March 2005, according to court records.
