Wisconsin woman cops to 13th drunken driving charge
We don't want too much take joy in what looks to be a rather glaring issue with alcohol, but at the same time we need to take note of this: Lisa White, 51, of St. Croix Falls, just pleaded guilty to her 13th -- that's right, 13th -- drunken driving charge.
She was pulled over just after midnight on June 27 by a Turtle Lake police officer, who found after a quick check that the car she was driving was registered to a guy who -- wait for it -- had his license revoked following what they call in Wisconsin an operating while intoxicated (OWI) conviction.
White told the officer that she didn't have a valid license, said she'd been drinking, took a sobriety test and was arrested.
According to the AP, Barron was already on extended supervision for previous drunken driving convictions when she was pulled over in Turtle Lake. Sentencing for her latest coviction has been scheduled for Dec. 15.
