Woman faces felony OWI
State patrol reports children in the car
A state trooper pulled over a car on U.S. 10 and cited the driver for her third OWI.
This time she had children in the car.
Tanya V. Casas, 32, Wisconsin Rapids, is charged with felony drunken driving.
On the evening of July 6, Trooper Kendi Linjer was eastbound on U.S. Highway 10 in Caldonia when he was advised that another trooper had run a plate on a westbound vehicle that showed the registered owner was suspended.
Linjer waited at the Waupaca/Winnebago county line for a blue Dodge Challenger.
As the vehicle came toward her, Linjer clocked it at 85 mph. She made a traffic stop.
Linjer reported that there was an adult male passenger in the front and two children in the back. The driver was identified as Casas.
The trooper also noticed two glasses in the front. She was told they contained vodka and lemonade.
After Casas failed the field sobriety tests to Linjer’s satisfaction, samples of her blood were drawn.
The test indicated she had a .208 blood-alcohol level.
