West Bend motorcyclist arrested for fourth OWI

WEST BEND, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A West Bend man was arrested for his fourth OWI after police say they got a tip from a caller. 

It happened just after 8:20 p.m. on June 13, according to West Bend Police. 

Investigators say someone reported seeing a motorcyclist lose control and "dump" his bike in the intersection of Sylvan Way and Butternut Street. The caller said the driver of the motorcycle was able to get back up and drove away from the area. 

West Bend officers found and stopped the motorcyclist a few blocks away from the location. Officers say the motorcyclist, a 52-year-old man from West Bend, appeared to be intoxicated. They say he failed field sobriety tests and blew a .173 in a PBT, which is more than twice the legal limit. 

He was arrested for his fourth OWI offense. Police say the man had a minor injury to his face and was treated at the scene by West Bend rescue personnel before being taken to the Washington County Jail.
