New London man faces felony OWI
Herbert D. Wolff, 57, is accused of his fifth drunken driving offense.
Shortly before 11:30 p.m. Friday, April 17, a motorist on County Trunk H in the town of Caledonia called 911 and reported that a silver Chevy Cobalt was swerving all over the road.
The caller began following the Chevy after seeing it pull into a driveway in order to turn around, twice.
He told 911 that the car stopped at the tracks on County Trunk HH for a passing train. The motorist exited his vehicle and asked the driver of the Cobalt if he was OK. He said he could smell alcohol.
Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Krueger was dispatched to the area, and he followed the Chevy when he saw it pull into another driveway.
After the driver, identified as Wolff, reportedly failed field sobriety tests, Krueger conducted a preliminary breath test. The results indicated that Wolff had a 0.242 blood-alcohol level.
Wolff was previously convicted of drunken driving in January 2011, January 1991, October 1990 and July 1989, according to the criminal complaint.
