Weston man facing 8th OWI


ROTHSCHILD, Wis (WSAU) Cole Knapp has been charged with an 8th OWI. The 29-year-old Weston man did jail time less than a year ago for a 7th drunk driving offense.

He was arrested in Rothschild on Saturday after a traffic stop on Grand Avenue. Officers said there were open beer cans in his car, and he'd admitted to being in a tavern earlier in the day.

Cole refused a breath test. While police were getting a warrant for a mandatory blood-draw he tried to run off from his vehicle. He was caught a short time later. Bond was set at $15,000, and he'll be back on court on May 22 for a preliminary hearing.
