Bloodshot eyes, shaky hands
A deputy found heroin after stopping an erratic driver on U.S. Highway 10.
Michael T. Graske, 33, Waupaca, is charged with a fourth offense of operating while intoxicated and possession of narcotics.
On July 21, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Pete Kraeger responded to a report of an erratic driver on U.S. 10.
He located the vehicle and made a traffic stop.
Kraeger reported that the driver, identified as Graske, had bloodshot eyes, shaky hands and almost fell asleep while speaking with him.
Graske was also visibly sweaty and wearing no shirt, according to the criminal complaint.
Graske denied using drugs or alcohol, but admitted to overdosing on heroin earlier that day, the complaint says.
After transporting him to the hospital for a blood draw, Kraeger saw Graske drop a wad of paper on the floor.
The deputy picked it up and reportedly found that it contained heroin.
Graske was previously convicted of OWI twice in 2006 and once in 2008.
He is currently in custody on a $5,000 cash bond.
