ASHWAUBENON – An 18-year-old Wisconsin man was arrested for OWI two times in less than three hours over the weekend, police say.

At about 4:20 a.m. Sunday Ashwaubenon officers responded to a crash in the 2100 block of South Broadway Street where a vehicle struck a light pole.

Officers encountered the Ashwaubenon man, who said he was coming home from a graduation party. Officers processed him for OWI 1st offense and he was released to another adult who signed a Responsibility Agreement to not allow the subject to operate a motor vehicle.

At about 7:00 a.m., another officer was working a traffic detail for a triathlon at the entrance to an area park and recognized the 18-year-old from the previous arrest, who was driving a different vehicle. The officer stopped him and he was again processed for OWI 2nd and taken to the Brown County Jail.

He is currently being held on felony bail jumping charges.
