Two people were taken into custody following a vehicle going into the ditch near Merrill.
Lincoln County deputies responded to a 911 call early yesterday morning on Golf Drive in the Town of Scott. The woman said a passenger in her vehicle caused it to lose control and slide off into the ditch.
When Deputies arrived on the scene 24 year old Ashley L. Buhse told Deputies she was driving down the roadway when 26 year old Justice J. Latzig-Gresens activated the vehicle’s emergency brake on the fog covered roadway causing her to lose control and go off the roadway.
Buhse was placed through field sobriety tests and taken into custody on a first offense charge of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Latzig-Gresens was arrested on a felony charge of reckless endangering safety. He remains in the Lincoln County Jail awaiting a bond hearing today.
