TOWN OF MEDINA, Wis. -

A crash outside a home in the Town of Medina Thursday night has led a Marshall woman to face her seventh charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office said Shea Verhagen, 55, was pulling into a driveway on Box Elder Road when she turned too wide, put the car in a ditch and struck a tree.

Verhagen was arrested on her seventh OWI. She is currently being held in the Dane County Jail.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
