YORKVILLE – A Milwaukee man was arrested here early Wednesday on a 5th offense of drunk driving, the Racine County Sheriff’s Office reported.

According to a news release, a sheriff’s deputy found a vehicle parked on the shoulder of South Sylvania Avenue near Grandview Parkway with its headlights on and engine running shortly after midnight on Wednesday. A door was open and the driver’s legs were hanging out.

The driver, Cantal M. Willis, 38, of Milwaukee, showed “numerous indicators of impairment,” the Sheriff’s Office reported. An on-scene blood alcohol test was 0.23, which was nearly three times the legal limit. A search of the vehicle resulted in several open containers of alcohol. A records check revealed that Willis’s driver’s license was revoked because of previous OWI convictions. He was on parole for a prior felony conviction and had an active misdemeanor arrest warrant from Milwaukee.

Willis was taken into custody on OWI 5th offense, operating a vehicle on a revoked license and a parole hold. He was being held in the Racine County Jail on Wednesday morning.
