Milwaukee Police have arrested a 56-year-old Milwaukee man for his third OWI offense after his car hit an on-duty squad car. The accident occurred around 4:10 pm on December 10 when the suspect’s car hit a squad car, driven by a District 7 officer, in the 3600 block of W. Fond du Lac Avenue. The officer was not injured and damage to the squad’s rear bumper area was minor.
Immediately after the accident, a bus driver flagged down the District 7 officer and told him that seconds before the squad car accident, the suspect’s car rear-ended the bus in the 3700 block of W. Fond du Lac Avenue. No one on board the bus was injured.
The suspect was taken into custody. The case will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
