2nd OWI Charge Filed Against Sussex Man Following Hit-and-Run

A deer and a raccoon also came out the worse for wear in Sussex-related items taken from Waukesha County Sheriff's Department logs.

A 33-year-old Sussex man was arrested for his second drunken driving offense following a hit-and-run accident in the parking lot of Mug Shotz in City of Pewaukee, according to the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department.

David R. Henkel was arrested for operating while intoxicated at his home at 12:52 a.m. Sunday in the W23700 block of Butternut Lane.

Henkel was charged Tuesday with the second-offense OWI. He faces, if convicted, between five days and six months in jail, fines between $350 and $1,000 and having his driver’s license revoked between 12 and 18 months.

A person at the Mug Shotz bar saw a vehicle back into a parked car and provided Henkel’s license plate number to deputies. When deputies arrived at Henkel’s home, he admitted to consuming six beers, according to a criminal complaint.

Henkel’s blood alcohol concentration was .16 percent, according to the complaint.
