A Minnesota woman is in custody after being arrested on OWI charges in Saint Croix County.
The Wisconsin State Patrol says Kimberly Rossman was in a disabled car on Interstate-94 between the Hammond and Roberts exits yesterday afternoon. Troopers say Rossman was showing signs of intoxication and was tested as having alcohol in her system. She was charged with her fifth OWI.
On that note, the latest plan to get tougher on drunk drivers in Wisconsin would have judges order ignition interlocks for everyone convicted of an OWI.
Current state law requires an interlock for repeat drunk drivers, as well as anyone who’s blood alcohol level is twice the legal limit. Judges can also order them under other certain circumstances. Lawmakers will introduce their new plan today.
