Wisconsin legislator guilty of drunk driving

A Wisconsin lawmaker recently had his drivers license suspended for six months after pleading guilty to his first offense of intoxicated driving (OWI) in Greenfield Municipal Court, according to local reports published on November 18.

In a statement released by Representative Josh Zepnick (Milwaukee-D), the legislator explained that he entered a guilty plea to a first-offense OWI. According to reports, the lawmaker was stopped by a Greenfield police on October 29 and admitted to having several beers before driving. Rep. Zepnick also stated that his vehicle will have an ignition interlock device installed for one year, and he was ordered to pay an undisclosed amount. The lawmaker, who expressed disappointment in his actions, apparently lost a sister in an accident caused by a drunk driver in 1990.
