JANESVILLE -- Terence Rittenhouse, 45, of Janesville was arrested for his 7th OWI offense. Rittenhouse initially caught the attention of a Rock County sheriff deputy while speeding near County Hwy. D and W. Hanover Rd.

Rittenhouse was transported to Mercy Hospital, and later taken to Rock County Jail. Rittenhouse has drunk driving convictions dating back to 1999.
