Shell Lake Man Charged With OWI 5th Offense

Friday, June 16, 2017 | by Ben Dryden

A Shell Lake man has been charged in Barron County Circuit Court with Operating While Intoxicated (OWI), 5th Offense, a Class G Felony.

According to the criminal complaint, the Cumberland Police Department was dispatched regarding a call of a red car racing up and down the street in the Berdan Trailer Park, located in the City of Cumberland, WI.

When the officer arrived, the caller showed him the red car in question which then drove towards the officer, so the officer activated the emergency lights on his squad car and conducted a traffic stop.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Jeremy Mosay, of Shell Lake, WI. Barron County Dispatch advised the officer that Mosay was on probation and under conditions to not consume any alcohol. Due to having 4 prior convictions for OWI, Mosay also is limited to the legal requirement of a blood alcohol level of not greater than .02.

The criminal complaint states that Mosay spoke with the officer and denied consuming alcohol. Mosay attempted to complete field sobriety testing but was unable to successfully do so. The officer then administered a preliminary breath test (PBT) on Mosay, the result of which was .126.

Mosay was placed under arrest at that time, and later a sample of his blood was obtained and then forwarded to the Wisconsin State Hygiene Lab for testing.

The criminal complaint further states that Mosay was also charged with Misdemeanor Operating While Revoked, due to his driver's license being revoked after a prior conviction for operating while intoxicated.

The maximum penalty for 5th Offense OWI is 10 years imprisonment.

Public record shows that Mosay appeared in Barron County Circuit Court for his Initial Appearance on June 12, 2017, regarding his charges. The court placed Mosay on $500 cash bail bond with an additional requirement that he submit to daily PBT's at the Washburn County Sheriff's Office or the Shell Lake Police Department. Mosay is scheduled to appear again on June 21, 2017.

Pursuant to the direction of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3.6, Trial Publicly, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
