It was part of Operation Drive Sober, an initiative enacted by acting Sheriff Richard Schmidt to clean the Milwaukee County freeway of intoxicated drivers.
“This is beyond crazy! A fourth offense drunk driver hits a citizen’s car, escapes the scene and we hunt him down and cuff him up. Another drunk driver totals one of our squads and gets arrested. Responsible, sober driving must become a reality, not an elusive dream! Have you had ENOUGH?!” Schmidt said in a statement.
