Wisconsin Adults Arrested In Connection With Driving Electric Scooters While Under The Influence0
Drinking and driving is always dangerous, but your mode of transportation can make a world of difference. Middleton Police said two adults were arrested Friday morning for operating electric scooters while impaired.
Around 11:20 p.m., police responded to a report of two impaired drivers at 5301 South Ridge Way. Upon arrival, the responding officers discovered the two suspects who displayed signs of intoxication and their electric scooters nearby.
A preliminary investigation revealed Shawn E. Miller, 39, of Ripon and Sheila M. Worth, 43, of Middleton, drove their electric scooters to the PDQ store on South Ridge Way. A witness become concerned about the suspects’ safety and notified the police.
After Miller found out police were on their way to the scene, he approached and threatened the caller, who responded by spraying him with pepper spray.
Both Miller and Worth were arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
This drunken excursion landed Miller and Worth in jail and on the first page of the newspaper. These two drunken fools were not idiots. They were just drunk. It is unknown what compelled the couple to head to the PDQ store on their scooters, but we’d like to think it had something to do with liquor. They knew they did not have a chance to out run the law.
