WEST BARABOO, Wis. -

A Baraboo man was arrested after a Sauk County deputy initiated a traffic stop and discovered the driver was over the blood alcohol content restrictions he had on his driver’s license.

Sauk County Sheriff’s Office deputies observed a vehicle southbound on Mulberry Street in the village of West Baraboo around 1:30 a.m. Monday, according to a release. When the deputy checked the vehicle’s registration and owner, the owner’s driver’s license status came back as revoked.

The deputy stopped the vehicle and the driver was identified as David J. Welsh, 48, of Baraboo, officials said. The deputy could smell intoxicants on Welsh’s breath, and learned that he had been convicted of three previous operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and had a restriction on his driver’s license that his blood alcohol content must be under 0.02 percent.

Welsh failed field sobriety tests and was transported to the Sauk County Jail on tentative charges of fourth offense in five years of operating a motor vehicle with a prohibited alcohol concentration and operating a motor vehicle after revocation.
