16 Arrested for DUI in Milwaukee Including 8 Repeat Offenders

This weekend’s Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office Operation Drive Sober initiative, from Friday at 4:00 PM through Sunday at 6:00 AM, resulted in the arrest of 16 drunken drivers. The average PBT result was .14.

Daniel Iverson, 42-years-old of Glendale was arrested for his 5th offense DUI and a Hit-and-run. On Saturday at 7:27 PM, deputies responded to a hit-and-run crash that occurred SB I-43 at West Hampton Ave. The striking vehicle fled at a high rate of speed, but witnesses obtained the license plate and vehicle description. 

Deputies investigated the crash and found the listed owner of the vehicle had loaned the car to Iverson. A deputy then waited at Iverson’s residence, where the suspect drove by and did not stop until the deputy pulled him over on East Good Hope Avenue and North Seneca Avenue shortly before 9:00 PM.

Iverson refused the PBT and blood test, and a search warrant was obtained. Iverson was previously convicted of DUI offenses in January 1995, November 1999, September 2005 and October 2009. If convicted on the current charge, he faces up to six years in prison.

James Nash, 49-years-old of Milwaukee and Eric Knaebe, 22-years-old of Milwaukee were arrested for 3rd offense DUI. DUI-2nd offenders: Ryan Ferguson, 28-years-old of Cedarburg, Juan Ontiveros-Zavala, 26-years-old of West Allis, Soom Boonnam, 36-years-old of Milwaukee, Marco Ocegueda, 23-years-old of Milwaukee, and Jonathan Adams, 31-years-old of Milwaukee were all arrested for 2nd offense DUI.

Shannon Buhler, 24-years-old, of West Allis, was arrested for DUI and driving the wrong way on the highway. At 2:25 AM Sunday, deputies responded to a call about a wrong way driver in a black Nissan on I-894 at Greenfield Avenue traveling southbound in the northbound lanes. At 2:28 AM, the driver crashed head-on with a box truck while heading eastbound in the westbound lanes of I-43 at 92nd Street, a distance of about 3.8 miles. The Nissan bounced off the box truck and struck a Cadillac.

Buhler was transported to Froedtert Hospital, after being extracted from the vehicle by the Greenfield Fire Department. Buhler underwent surgery for a possible broken arm. The drivers of the two vehicles she struck were not injured. She faces charges of 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety, driving wrong way on highway, and 1st offense DUI. If convicted Buhler faces up to 12 years in prison.

Milwaukee residents Carrie Knapp, age 35, Elisa Neubacher, age 21, Deandre Euell, age 30, and Warithuddin Majeed, age 25 were also arrested along with Robert Schroeder, age 26, of Lake Mills; William Newman, age 21, of Madison; and Ronald Smith, age 62, of Cudahy.
