The Wisconsin State Patrol arrested a 47-year-old man from Rosemount Tuesday night for drunken driving — which would be his 10th offense if convicted.
A trooper stopped Lawrence M. LaPole around 10:07 p.m. on Hwy. 29 at 765th Street in Elk Mound. He was arrested and charged with drunken driving, failure to install an ignition interlock device, operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license and following another vehicle too closely, the Wisconsin State Patrol said.
LaPole was taken to Mayo Health in Menomonie for a blood draw then was booked into the Dunn County jail, the Wisconsin State Patrol said.
La Pole has a long list of driving violations, including felony convictions for drunken driving, dating to 1989, court records show.
