JANESVILLE, Wis. -

A Janesville man was arrested on tentative felony operating while intoxicated charges after leaving a Dean Clinic and driving home drunk, police said.

Around 3:30 p.m. on Friday a Janesville police officer was sent to the 3200 block of East Racine Street for a traffic complaint, according to an alert.

The staff at the Dean Clinic reported that David Dorcey, 58, left the clinic intoxicated, officials said.

An officer found Dorcey at his residence and he smelled of alcohol, the officer said. Dorcey then admitted to driving his vehicle home and agreed to perform standardized field sobriety tests.

Based on previous drunken driving violations Dorcey’s legal limit is 0.02 percent, and a preliminary breath test indicated his BAC was 0.16 percent, according to the alert.

Dorcey is being held at the Rock County Jail on a tentative felony fourth-offense OWI charge.
