Wisconsin Man Arrested For 11th OWI

Posted: Saturday, May 12, 2012 -- 4:42 a.m.

DE PERE, Wis. (AP) -- A 55-year-old De Pere man has been charged with his 11th drunken-driving offense.

Charges say the man, Patrick Moore, 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 reports Moore 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.
