Gas station clerk keeps eye on suspected drunken driver

Aug. 29, 2011

A Milwaukee man was arrested for a fourth offense of drunken driving after he told a gas station clerk he was "wasted," Brookfield police said.

According to the City of Brookfield police report:

The 52-year-old man uttered that "he was wasted" to a clerk at the gas station at 124th Street and Burleigh Road at 11 a.m. Aug. 27.

The clerk jumped in her car and followed the man to Sluggo's Sports Bar, 12760 W. Burleigh Road, and reported to police that he was stumbling in the parking lot.

Responding officers found the man inside the bar and performed sobriety tests before he could order a drink.

He submitted a blood sample to establish his blood-alcohol content and was arrested for drunken driving, fourth offense.
