Mr. Brown was arrested for Causing Injury while Operating a Motor Vehicle While under the Influence, and Endangering Safety with Firearm While Intoxicated.
Victim: Female, age 19, Waunakee
Details: The MPD was dispatched to American Parkway Monday night after a concerned motorist reported almost being struck by a Jeep Wrangler that was operating in the wrong traffic lane without headlights on. The call was updated with new information after the Jeep's driver collided with a Dodge Neon.
A 19-year old Waunakee woman was driving the car. She told police she was heading north on American Parkway when the Jeep "came right at her." She was not seriously injured, but her car sustained significant damage. Officers contacted the other driver, who stopped about 100-yards from the crash site. He had a concealed carry permit for a loaded handgun found in a jacket pocket, and was arrested on tentative charges listed above.
