A Janesville man and Janesville woman were arrested in separate cases of operating while intoxicated over the weekend, according to Janesville police.
At 11:36 p.m. on Saturday, an officer spotted a vehicle on East Racine Street and found that the driver had outstanding warrants. The officer said the driver, Misty D. Rogers, 32, appeared to be intoxicated. She agreed to take field sobriety tests and failed, according to police.
Rogers was arrested on suspicion of fourth-offense operating while intoxicated.
At 1 a.m. Sunday a Janesville police officer said he stopped a vehicle because a check of records showed the owner had a revoked license. The registered owner was not the driver.
The driver, David L. Dutcher, 35, did not have a driver’s license, and when asked, told the officer he had not been drinking, according to police.
The officer said he smelled alcohol when Dutcher got out of the vehicle and Dutcher admitted to having three beers earlier. Dutcher showed signs of impairment during a field sobriety test and a portable breath test showed Dutcher was over the legal limit for someone with three or more drunken driving convictions, according to police.
Dutcher was arrested on suspicion of sixth offense OWI. Police said a blood sample was taken and toxicology results are pending.
