Police say 64-year-old Milwaukee man was drunk when he hit a motorcycle with his truck Friday night at The Saloon.
A 64-year-old Milwaukee man has been charged with his third drunken-driving offense after he allegedly struck a motorcycle in the parking lot of The Saloon, 120 E. Rawson Ave.
Daniel Broetzmann was charged Saturday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court with operating while intoxicated and operating with a prohibited alcohol content.
According to an Oak Creek police report, a witness said Broetzmann backed his truck into a motorcycle that was legally parked in the Saloon lot. The accident caused moderate damage to the front and left side of the motorcycle.
Officers arrived at the scene and found Broetzmann to be intoxicated, the report said, and took him to the hospital for a blood draw.
According to a criminal complaint, he had a preliminary blood-alcohol content of .23.
Broetzmann is due back in court July 25 for a pre-trial conference. He could face up to one year in county jail if convicted.
He was previously convicted of OWI in 1996 and 1999
