VIENNA, Wis. — Dane County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Monday after they said he drove into a field.

Officials said the 58-year-old man from Dane was acting erratically when crews arrived at the crash in the 6500 block of Patton Road, north of Waunakee, just after 1 p.m. He was not injured in the crash.

He reportedly failed field sobriety tests and was taken to the hospital for a blood test. He was later arrested and faces a charge of operating while intoxicated — ninth offense. He also faces charges of operating after revocation and bail jumping.
