DE PERE, Wis. (AP) -- A 55-year-old De Pere man has been charged with his 11th drunken-driving offense.
Charges say the man was driving a motorcycle that rear-ended a sport utility vehicle Wednesday afternoon. He fell off his motorcycle while talking to a police officer, repeated himself and slurred his words.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette (http://gbpg.net/KgotLq) reports the man said he drank two beers over lunch about an hour before the accident.
The man refused to complete field sobriety tests or a preliminary breath test but later submitted to a blood test at a hospital. He was charged Thursday with felony operating while intoxicated.
The man has 10 prior OWI convictions, with the first in 1989 and the last in 2006. He had a valid driver's license when he was arrested Wednesday.
