(FOND DU LAC, WI.)–A man arrested by Appleton police for his 11th drunk driving offense has been ordered to stand trial. One police officer testified on Wednesday at the preliminary hearing Wednesday for 42-year-old Steven Johnson of Fond du Lac.
An arraignment date has not been set, according to Outagamie County court records. Johnson was arrested January 1st after a traffic crash in downtown Appleton. The preliminary breath test showed a blood alcohol three times the legal limit for driving.
Despite ten previous drunk driving suspensions, revocations or convictions between 2006 and 1990, police said Johnson had a valid driver’s license at the time of his arrest. Court records show Johnson was sentenced to three years in prison for a 2006 arrest in Oshkosh. He also had to serve three years on probation.
