Man faces 3rd OWI charge after ramming car stopped at stoplight
Police: Man resisted arrest following field sobriety tests
MADISON, Wis. — A 28-year-old man faces numerous charges after he allegedly struck a car and resisted arrest on Madison’s east side early Friday morning.
The incident happened near the corner of Anderson Street and International Lane just before 1:30 a.m. Friday.
According to police, Michael Becker was going westbound on Anderson when he rear ended a car stopped at a red light at International Lane. Police said Becker’s car went onto a front lawn of a business in the 2300 block of International Lane following the crash.
Police said Becker then struck a retaining wall next to the building before backing over several landscaping lights.
Police said an officer administered field sobriety tests and advised Becker he was under arrest for his third offense of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Police said at that point, Becker began resisting officers’ attempt to arrest him. However, police were able to arrest Becker without injuries to officers or Becker.
