New Berlin man arrested for fourth OWI following crash
MILWAUKEE — A 47-year-old New Berlin man faces his fourth OWI, failure to report an accident and failure to control a vehicle citations after crashing his vehicle on southbound I-43 Sunday, December 16th and leaving the scene.
Officials were dispatched to an abandoned vehicle involved in a one-car crash shortly before 12:30 p.m. on southbound I-43 near Loomis Road. Upon arrival, authorities noticed the vehicle appeared to have struck a tree adjacent to the ramp.
Deputies went to the owner’s home and arrested 47-year-old Tom Mayworm after he admitted to deputies that he was driving the vehicle when it struck the tree.
Mayworm’s PBT results were .28 — more than three times the legal limit.
Mayworm’s prior OWI convictions occurred in September 1992, February 1998 and March 2000.
