Lure of iPad too much for alleged drunken driver

May 30, 2012

A man who allegedly crashed his car while driving drunk and then fled was apprehended by Wauwatosa police after returning to pick up his iPad.

According to the police report:

A 39-year-old New Berlin man was arrested for drunken driving, hit-and-run and resisting arrest after he struck a parked car and crashed into a front yard in the 8100 block of West Wisconsin Avenue at 5:53 p.m. May 23.

He took off running, then returned briefly to grab his iPad before running off again. He was stopped in the 8000 block of Portland Avenue with cuts on his face.

When the patrol car pulled up, he ran into a wooded area of Honey Creek Parkway. The police dog located him.

He refused a breath test, so blood was drawn to determine his alcohol content.
