A Milwaukee man was arrested in Fond du Lac County Monday for an alleged fifth offense of drunken driving.

According to officials with the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department, deputies received a report of an erratic driver traveling south on Highway 41 entering Fond du Lac County shortly after 11:37 a.m. Sunday. A Wisconsin State Patrol press release says a trooper stopped the vehicle on Highway 23 east of Highway 41 because the car had a cracked windshield.
