MADISON, Wis. -

Officials said a 42-year-old man was charged with his sixth drunken driving offense Friday after a rollover crash.

The Wisconsin State Patrol said Lawrence Cook, of Fifeld, was driving on Highway 80 at 5:51 p.m. when he rolled his vehicle near Highway P in Iowa County.

A state trooper said he detected a "strong odor of intoxicants coming from the driver," according to the report.

Cook was given field sobriety tests, treated for minor injuries and taken to Iowa County Jail, officials said.

Cook was arrested on suspicion of sixth-offense operating a motor vehicle under the influence.
