A Wauwatosa man whose erratic driving had neighbors concerned was arrested for drunken driving for the fifth time last week.
According to the Wauwatosa police report:
Police had received complaints from neighbors of the 57-year-old man who said he routinely drove home drunk in the evenings, and they feared for the safety of the children in the area.
The man's license had been revoked due to prior drunken driving convictions, so an officer was waiting at 116th Street and Watertown Plank Road at 5:53 p.m. Feb. 7 as he pulled into the driveway.
The man smelled of alcohol and said he had been at a bar at 124th and Burleigh streets before heading home. He refused to take a breath test, so his blood was drawn at a local hospital and sent to the state crime lab.
The district attorney has put off issuing charges until March 14, when blood test results should be ready.
