After reports of erratic and reckless driving, officers with the Mount Pleasant Police Department came upon Cheverolet Silverado, a stolen truck, parked in the opposite lane of Crown Court.
Police found Alex D. Boughton Jr., 39, of Racine, in the truck, which was reported stolen. Sleeping and drooling on himself, police had trouble waking Boughton up, according to a criminal complaint.
Once awake, he refused to give his name and told police to kiss his (explative).
“I asked the male to unbuckle his seatbelt… and step out of the vehicle,” the complaint reads. “The male struggled to find the seatbelt and after several attempts he was able to locate the buckle.”
Struggling to stand up, the officer grabbed Boughton Jr. to keep him from falling down.
He was eventually identified and is charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent, operating while intoxicated and operate a motor vehicle while revoked. If convicted on all the charges, Boughton Jr. faces up to seven years six months in prison and/or fined up to $13,600.
