A defective brake light led to a familiar charge for a Sussex man early Wednesday morning in Menomonee Falls.
Erik Kettleson, 37, was pulled over while driving near Town Line Road and Good Hope Road around at 2:15 a.m. for a defective light. When an officer spoke with Kettleson, he noticed all the signs of impairment including slurred speech, glassy eyes, and the smell of alcohol.
When asked how much he had consumed, Kettleson told the officer, “Too much to be driving, probably,” according to a report from the police department.
Kettleson failed sobriety tests and was taken for a blood draw. He then booked, cited, and transported to jail. He is now being charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court for his fifth-offense OWI.
