Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office

MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee County sheriff’s officials say a wrong-way driver was arrested early on Christmas Eve morning.

It was around 2:15 a.m. on Thursday, December 24th when deputies responded to 911 calls regarding a wrong-way driver traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of US-45 from Appleton Avenue.

A deputy and Wisconsin State Patrol trooper were able to stop the vehicle at Mayfair Road.

The total distance traveled was about 5.5 miles, according to sheriff’s officials.

The 31-year-old Milwaukee woman who was driving the vehicle told officials she had consumed one-and-a-half drinks at a friend’s home.

She refused to submit to a preliminary breath test, and was taken to Froedtert Hospital for a blood draw.

A search warrant for that blood draw was obtained from a judge after the woman also refused the blood draw.

She now faces charges of DUI – first offense, driving the wrong way on a divided highway, second degree recklessly endangering safety, and operating while suspended.
