A 42-year-old Port Washington man is facing charges after police caught him driving drunk with drugs in his car.
Shawn G. Breimon was charged in Ozaukee County Circuit Court on Sept. 24 with one count of third offense operating while intoxicated, one count of possession of narcotic drugs, one count of possession of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, and one count of bail jumping. If convicted, he faces up to 5-½ years in prison and $23,000 in fines.
On Sept. 23, a Port Washington police officer on patrol spotted Briemon driving westbound in the parking lane in the 200 block of Grand Avenue, according to the criminal complaint. The officer noticed Breimon’s car drifted between the parking lane and center lane, then went over the center line into oncoming traffic, so he pulled him over.
Breimon smelled of intoxicants and had glassy eyes. The officer tried to have him undergo field sobriety tests, but the complaint says Breimon was unable to follow directions or keep his balance, so he was placed under arrest.
The officer searched Breimon and found a Vicodin pill in his jacket pocket. He then searched Breimon’s car and found seven more Vicodin pills along with Relpax, Lisinopril, Xanax and Alprazolam pills, and a baggie of marijuana.
Breimon was previously convicted of OWI in 2001 and 2003. He’s currently free on $1,500 bond while awaiting trial.
