PD: Driver Crashes into Walgreens' Bushes, Faces 4th OWI

Police found the 64-year-old Fredonia man unconscious in his vehicle after the crash.

A 64-year-old Fredonia man is accused of his fourth drunk driving offense after police say he crashed his vehicle into bushes at Walgreens in Saukville.

George H. Volesky was charged in Ozaukee County Circuit Court on Monday with one count of fourth offense operating while intoxicated. If convicted, he faces up to one year in jail and $2,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Nov. 30, Saukville police officers were called to Walgreens after witnesses saw Volesky’s vehicle roll over a curb and crash into some bushes. When officer’s arrived, Volesky was unconscious inside the vehicle.

After waking up, Volesky told police he drank and took pills. He was unable to perform field sobriety tests due to his intoxication levels and refused to take a Breathalyzer test, so he was taken to Aurora Medical Center in Grafton for a blood test.

Volesky was previously convicted of OWI in 1995, 2001 and 2004. He’s currently free on $750 bond while awaiting trial.

750 bond and 4th offense. Hmm what would have happen if he hit someone. 800 bond? Wisconsin's drinking laws are something else. The laws are much tougher for shoplifting. Something is wrong here. Just where is the money going?

I was the actual witnesses who found him unconcious over his wheel. His blank stare is burned into my memory. After I read this story I was angry for the rest of the night. It scares me to think he made it from Fredonia to Saukville. He had no idea where he was, and could not walk.
