Greenfield Man Charged With 5th OWI

A Greenfield man is accused of driving drunk through West Allis Sunday evening.

A 60-year-old Greenfield man is accused of his fifth drunk driving offense after being stopped by West Allis police Sunday evening.

Joe Domacinovich was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Tuesday with one count of fifth offense operating while intoxicated. If convicted, he faces up to three years in prison and $10,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

At 9:15 p.m. Sunday, a driver called the West Allis Police Department after he saw Domacinovich driving a car without its lights on. The driver followed Domacinovich into the 2300 block of South 84th Street, where an officer tried to pull Domacinovich over after Domacinovich weaved toward an alley, but didn’t enter.

Domacinovich didn’t pull over and instead went eastbound on West Lincoln Avenue, then turned northbound on South 80th Street. He then drove into the oncoming traffic lanes before pulling into a driveway in the 2100 block of South 80th.

Domacinovich started to get out of the car, but was instructed to get back inside. He said he was coming from home and driving home, and after told that didn’t make sense, Domacinovich then said he didn’t know where he was driving from.

Domacinovich said he wasn’t drunk and only had two beers before driving, but when asked why he pulled into the driveway of the home, he shrugged and said “I don’t know.”

He then failed field sobriety tests and was taken to West Allis Memorial Hospital for a blood test.

Domacinovich was previously convicted of OWI in 1998, 2003, 2004 and 2008. He’s currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail on $1,000 bond while awaiting trial.

Correction: Wisconsin has a lot of drunk drivers because Wisconsin has the most lenient drunk driving laws.
