Madison Police arrested a man for 3rd offense OWI after he allegedly fell asleep behind the wheel of his van and crashed into an SUV.

The crash happened Monday afternoon on S. First St.

“I just don't know … I'm drunk. Just give me a ticket,” the man is quoted in the police report.

Officers arrested 50-year-old Vincent Barkus for Operating While Intoxicated - 3rd offense and Resisting.
