According to the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office, someone called 911 after seeing a Ford F-150 heading west on I-94 have trouble staying in its lane. Gallardo's truck was initially spotted going through the stadium interchange, but was pulled over on I-94 at 76th St.

The Sheriff's Office reports Gallardo told them he was drinking at Leff's Lucky Town in Wauwatosa. He allegedly admitted to having only a couple beers. The sheriff's office says he had nearly three times the legal limit of alcohol in his body when he was pulled over. His blood alcohol concentration was .22.
