Stevens Point man facing 5th drunk driving charge

A driver in Stevens Point was recently charged with a drunk driving offense after the Wisconsin State Patrol stated his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was far beyond the legal limit, a June 6 article of the Stevens Point Journal reported.

Reports said 48-year-old Bernard Thompson was arrested on June 4 due to suspicion that he was driving while under the influence in the vicinity of State 22 and Portage County AA. Court documents revealed that Thompson’s BAC during the arrest was 0.151 percent, while the state’s legal BAC is 0.08 percent. Thompson, who has four previous OWI convictions, was confined to Portage County Jail on a $2,500 cash bond. He is expected to appear at trial on June 20 and is at risk of up to six years in jail if found guilty of the offense.
