Quest For Fourth Meal Ends in 3rd OWI Charge
An Oak Creek man is in jail after a drunken-driving arrest early Monday morning.
A 28-year-old Oak Creek man is in jail after police say he made a Taco Bell run following a night of heavy drinking.
Steven A. Valvo was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Monday with third-offense operating while intoxicated. If convicted, he faces up to one year in jail and $2,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 1:43 a.m. Monday, a witness spotted Valvo driving northbound in the 8000 block of S. Howell Avenue and swerving, so he contacted the Oak Creek Police Department and followed Valvo into a subdivision. Valvo then went to his home on Evandale Drive, where officers found him.
Valvo said he drank three beers and two shots and drove to Taco Bell for food when the witness saw him. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.24, which is three times more than the legal limit to drive in Wisconsin.
Valvo was previously convicted of OWI in 2005 and on June 12. Valvo is being held in Milwaukee County Jail.
