MUSKEGO - A preliminary hearing is set for Thursday, Aug. 10, for a 51-year-old Muskego man who has been charged with 10th-offense drunken driving.
The preliminary blood alcohol level of Daniel T. Lesniewski of Jean Drive was 0.221, nearly three times the 0.08 considered legal evidence of intoxication in Wisconsin, according to the criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court.
He had just dropped off his wife at the Waukesha Huber facility when he was stopped by a Waukesha County sheriff's deputy. Someone at the Huber facility had called authorities about a suspected drunken driver, according to the complaint.
Lesniewski was stopped at Delafield Street at Irving Place in Waukesha about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, July 26. The sheriff's deputy said it took the defendant about a minute and a half to pull his drivers license out of his wallet. He also failed all the field sobriety tests, the complaint says.
Lesniewski maintained that he had not been drinking that day, according to the complaint.
Bail was set at $100,000. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison and a fine of $50,000.
