Police received a report of a possible drunk driver Friday night on Highway C near Highway MB.

“Apparently he was driving into oncoming traffic; he was all over the road, and at one point allegedly left the roadway,” said Sgt. Mark Malecki.

It has not been determined if Hess is facing his 10th DUI charge, as they have only been able to confirm seven convictions through Illinois authorities. He also has other DUI arrests. Officials say Hess will be charged in Wisconsin depending on how those cases were adjudicated in Illinois.

Assistant District Attorney Jessica Krejcarek said Hess may be “charged with DIU eighth, ninth or 10th offense.”

Police said Hess has not held a valid driver’s license since 1995 and served time in prison for DUI in Illinois. Hess holds a supervisory position at a company in Kenosha.

Hess was arrested and charged for reckless driving and possession of open alcohol containers. A temporary bond of $50,000 was set and will be revisited on Friday, when Hess is scheduled to return to court.
