A Lannon man is facing his sixth drunken driving charge after relatives called Brookfield police on him for showing up at their home and yelling through the windows.
Lawrence P. Hoskins, 48, was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Monday with one felony count of sixth-offense operating while intoxicated. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint:
When police arrived at the residence in the 600 block of South Calhoun Road about 10:30 p.m. Friday, officers saw Hoskins leaving at a high rate of speed.
When they stopped his vehicle, Hoskins said he had been at the house, but he had a difficult time speaking and smelled of intoxicants. He was asked to perform a field sobriety test but was only able to walk in a “duck-like fashion.” He pretended to blow into a Breathalyzer to determine his blood-alcohol level.
Hoskins previously was convicted of drunken driving in 1990, 1992, 1993, 1996 and 2005. He was ordered held in Waukesha County Jail on $10,000 cash bond.
