New Year Brings Man's First Drunk Driving Arrest

The recent logs at Whitefish Bay Police Department also show a locker room theft and a stolen license plate used as toll fare.

Four hours after welcoming in the New Year, a 27-year-old Fox Point man received his first drunken driving citation.

The man, whose blood alcohol levels measured more than twice the legal limit at 0.17, was pulled over by police at 4:15 a.m. on Jan. 1 in the 5600 block of Lake Drive.

He was cited with drunken driving, failing to stop at a flashing red light at Silver Spring Drive and Lake Drive, and deviating from his designated lane on Lake Drive at Hampton Road. He was also cited with operating without proof of insurance.
