A Turtle Lake man is facing Felony charges for Operating While Intoxicated 5th Offense following a traffic stop in Milltown, in Polk County.
According to the probable cause report from the Polk County Sheriff's Office, the Deputy stopped the vehicle after a check of the vehicle's registration indicated that the registered owner had a revoked driver's license.
The driver of the vehicle was identified as Donald Duclon, of Turtle Lake, WI. The probable cause report states that the Deputy asked Duclon if he had been drinking that day, to which Duclon replied no. The Deputy also reportedly asked Duclon if he had any open cases, to which Duclon also replied no.
Duclon is actually currently under conditions of a bail bond in Barron County Circuit Court which prohibits him from possessing or consuming alcohol, the probable cause report goes on to state. Duclon also has a restriction on his driver's license prohibiting him from having a blood alcohol concentration over .02. When Duclon submitted to a preliminary breath test, the result was .10. The Deputy also discovered that Duclon had previously been convicted of OWI on 4 separate occasions. Duclon agreed to an evidentiary blood draw and was taken to a hospital for that.
Public record indicates that criminal charges were filed in Polk County Circuit Court on August 4, 2017, charging Duclon with Class G Felony OWI 5th Offense, Misdemeanor Operating While Revoked, and 3 counts of Misdemeanor Bail Jumping. According to public record, Duclon appeared in Polk County Circuit Court on August 4, 2017, nd the Court placed him on a $1,000 Cash Bail Bond. He is due back in Court on August 10, 2017.
