A 26-year-old Oak Creek man was charged with drunk driving (2nd offense), carrying a concealed weapon, and operating a vehicle after revocation by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on Thursday.

If convicted of all three misdemeanor counts, the man faces up to one year three months in prison, and fines up to $13,600. He also received a citation for driving 80 mph in a 35 mph zone, and reckless driving.

According to the criminal complaint, Caledonia Police saw the man for speeding at 1:58 a.m. Thursday in the 6400 block of Highway 31 and did a traffic stop in the 7100 block of Highway 32. The man smelled of alcohol, had blurry red eyes and slow speech. He told the officer that he had a long driving record and didn’t have a driver’s license.

The man was arrested for driving under suspicion of alcohol.

A woman, who was the passenger in the car, also didn’t have a driver’s license. She didn’t give consent to the police to search the car, but police were able to search it only for evidence related to the man’s drunk driving arrest.

A bottle of alcohol, three knives and some brass knuckles were found in the car. The officer did not take the knives, but gave the man a warning for having them. The carrying a conceal weapon citation was for having the brass knuckles, which the woman told police was part of the man’s belt buckle.
