Wisconsin man had valid license for eleventh drunken driving offense

A Fond du Lac man was charged with drunk driving for the eleventh time in Wisconsin. Oddly, the man had a valid driver’s license at the time.

The Associated Press:

Steven Johnson of Fond du Lac was arrested by police on New Year’s Day in Appleton.

Police Sgt. David Lund said Thursday that despite 10 previous drunken-driving convictions, Johnson’s license was reinstated in July. It was revoked for three years after his 10th drunken-driving conviction in mid-2006.

Records show the 52-year-old’s nine prior charges happened between 1990 and 1997.

Authorities say Johnson’s blood alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit when he was arrested Sunday night.
