BURNETT COUNTY -- A Webster, WI man is once again facing charges of Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) 5th Offense following a traffic stop on September 7, 2018 by a Village of Webster Police Officer.
Brian Doriott, is charged with Class G Felony OWI 5th Offense, Misdemeanor Fail to Install Ignition Interlock Device, and Misdemeanor Operate While Revoked after a Police Officer for the Village of Webster stopped Doriott’s vehicle on September 7, 2018 for weaving across the center of the roadway on Main Street East.
DrydenWire.com reported in March 2017, that Doriott was facing charges of OWI 5th Offense after an incident on December 16, 2016, when Burnett County Dispatch received a report of a drunk driver. Those charges were later amended down to OWI 4th Offense following a collateral attack motion by Doriott’s defense counsel. Doriott was sentenced to serve 270 days in jail for that conviction with credit for 155 days previously served.
The new criminal complaint filed on September 18, 2018, in Burnett County Circuit Court against Doriott states that on September 7, 2018, the Village of Webster Police Officer visually identified Doriott as the driver of the vehicle. The officer saw Doriott fail to stop at two different stop signs, and Doriott did not pull over or stop even though the officer activated the squad car’s emergency lights and siren.
When Doriott reached his residence within the Village of Webster, he pulled into the driveway, drove over a curb, and nearly ran over a bicycle in the lawn, according to the criminal complaint.
After Doriott exited the vehicle, the officer attempted to conduct field sobriety testing with Doriott, however Doriott was not able to successfully complete the tests. A preliminary test of Doriott’s breath gave a result of .141. Doriott was placed under arrest and transported to the Burnett Medical Center for an evidentiary blood draw. The results of that blood test are not known to DrydenWire.com at this time.
At a bail bond hearing on September 10, 2018 regarding these new charges, the Court placed Doriott on a $250 cash bail bond with conditions that he maintain absolute sobriety and not operate a vehicle without a valid permit. Conditions of Doriott’s bail bond also require him to undergo random testing of alcohol upon reasonable suspicion.
Doriott is scheduled to make an initial appearance on his new charges later this week
