RAYMOND, WI – A Milwaukee man was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving with his child in the car after he drove into a ditch Sunday night.
Rosario Mendoza Conchi, 39, was arrested on a felony charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (3rd offense) with a child under 16-years-old, according to a press release by the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.
Mendoza Conchi was driving with his 4-year-old child when his car went into the ditch at 5:05 p.m. Sunday night in the 2700 Block of West Seven Mile Road.
When deputies arrived on scene they gave Mendoza Conchi a field sobriety test, which he failed. His blood-alcohol level was .206, over twice the legal limit of .08.
Mendoza Conchi’s license had been revoked because of his earlier drunk driving convictions. Because of that, hewas restricted from driving with a blood-alcohol concentration greater than .02.
Deputies took him into custody. He is being held at the Racine County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
A family member picked up the child, who was uninjured.
“During this investigation Deputies comforted the child during a time of distress and provided a care package. These care packages are kindly provided to our agency by the non-profit group, Faith, Hope, and Love as part of their Duffles for Kids program. These care packages contain a stuffed animal, a blanket, books, coloring materials, and other items,” the press release reads.
