Driver admits to being too drunk to be behind wheel

Oct. 9, 2012

A 42-year-old Brookfield man was cited for drunken driving after blowing through a flashing red light and stopping in the middle of an intersection in the 10800 block of West Bluemound Road at 3:28 a.m. Oct. 4.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

When asked if he knew why he'd been pulled over, the man cut off the officer and said that he was driving like crazy and was a little buzzed.

When the officer said field sobriety tests would be conducted to see if the man was able to drive, the man interrupted again, saying "I'm not (able to drive)." He said the tests weren't worth doing because he was not able to drive.

He was taken for a blood draw so his blood-alcohol content could be determined. Results were not available.

The man has no prior drunken driving offenses.
