Rubicon man sentenced to prison for OWI, intimidation of a victim

DODGE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 54-year-old Rubicon man was sentenced to ten years in prison Monday, according to the Dodge County DA's Office.

Officials say Earl Captain was convicted of OWI 5th offense, felony intimidation of a victim and felony bail jumping. 

Officers responded to Captain's residence in October of 2018 after receiving a phone call from a woman who claimed that he was drunk, had hit her, pointed a gun at her, destroyed things in her home and threatened to kill her if she contacted police, according to a press release. The woman was safely removed from the home and Captain was charged. Authorities say Captain posted bond of $2,500 and was released. 

Police say less than two months after posting bond, Captain showed up at the victim's residence drunk and armed with a gun. The court placed Captain on a new $10,000 bond, which he posted.

Officials say Captain was again stopped a few months later, and arrested for his 5th OWI after another driver called and reported a car swerving into oncoming traffic.

He faces ten years in prison, followed by three years of probation, according to the DA's Office.
