Woman out on bail arrested for fourth OWI

A 53-year-old Milwaukee woman was arrested for fourth-offense drunken driving while she was out on bail for her third pending drunk driving charge on Nov. 14.

According to Greenfield police:

Police responded to a call of a reckless driver who struck a fence in the parking lot at Burger King, 4555 W. Forest Home Ave., shortly before 11 a.m. Nov. 14. Although the driver fled before police arrived, officers identified the suspect from a license plate that was left at the scene.

Police found the woman at her residence in the 2400 block of South 43rd Street in Milwaukee. The woman failed field sobriety tests and admitted drinking vodka before driving to Burger King that morning. Her blood alcohol content was 0.24.

She was arrested for fourth-offense drunken driving and was transported to the hospital for a legal blood draw. When police later discovered the woman was out on bail for a pending drunk driving charge at the time of the incident, she was also arrested for bail jumping.
