Bet He Wishes He Was In Milwaukee

State Representative Jeff Wood (I-Margaritaville) got busted for his third OWI and possession of marijuana. WisPolitics.com has some of the down and dirty details:
The arresting trooper reporting coming up on a car that was pulled over on Interstate 39/90/94 with its emergency lights flashing. The trooper said Wood, I-Bloomer, was urinating on the side of the road when he came upon him.

According to the report, Wood told the trooper he had pulled over to talk to his wife on his cell phone. The trooper detected an odor of intoxicants, Wood’s eyes were bloodshot and glassy, and Wood’s speech was slurred.

Witnesses had called police to report a car driving erratically on the interstate. One of the witnesses said the driver had driven into the median and struck a sign.

The trooper noted damage to Wood’s car, including a flat tire and damaged rim that suggested the car had been driven some distance after the tire went flat. Wood said he didn’t know how it happened and suggested it may have occurred while he was parking.
I wonder if Wood wishes he had done this while driving through Milwaukee County. Then Sheriff Clarke could've zipped him up and changed his tire before sending him on his way. That is, of course, unless a real law enforcement officer showed up at the scene.


  1. capper, how dare you impugn the reputation of a fine law enforcement professional like Sheriff David Clarke!

  2. I don't have to impugn Clarke's reputation. He does it all by himself.

  3. Clarke sounds ready to be the star of his own sit-com, something like Mayberry, RFD, with a character like Barney Fife in charge to set a good example of competence.
