5th OWI filed against Stevens Point driver

Drunk driving and speeding charges were recently filed against a Stevens Point man after he was arrested by state highway authorities, an article of WSAU reported on June 7.

The Wisconsin State Patrol apprehended Bernard Thompson, 48, on June 4, on County Road AA. Reports revealed that Thompson’s blood alcohol level (BAC) at the time was 0.15 percent. The legal BAC in Wisconsin is 0.08 percent or lower. During inspection, authorities discovered that there were “open intoxicants” inside Thompson’s vehicle. If convicted, Thompson, who is now suspected of drunk driving for the fifth time, is facing a jail term up to six years. Thompson is scheduled for a court hearing on June 20 and has a $2,500 cash bond imposed on him.
