Drunk driver arrested in wheelchair on Freeway

MILWAUKEE (WKOW)  -- Milwaukee County Sheriff's deputies made an odd arrest this weekend.

Authorities say around 2:30 a.m. Friday, a deputy noticed a man driving a motorized wheelchair in heavy fog on the Marquette Interchange.

Deputies arrested 35-year-old Danel Samplaski for OWI after he blew a .23 on a breathalyzer test. That is nearly three times the legal limit of .08.

Samplaski has four prior OWI convictions.
