A 49-year-old Burlington man was arrested Jan. 23 for ninth-offense drunken driving in the town of Lyons.

If convicted, Algwyn L. Stanley, 1445 Pleasant St., faces up to 10 years imprisonment and $25,000 in fines.

He also faces a mandatory minimum sentence of three years imprisonment.

Stanley is currently in custody in the Walworth County jail in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond.

According to the criminal complaint:

Around 4:34 p.m., a witness called police to report a black Chevy truck that was all over the road on Highway 120.

The witness said the suspicious vehicle was sideways at one point, and it struck a sign.

The driver of the black Chevy truck turned around on Highway 11 and then drove into the Country Estates trailer park. The witness followed the driver into the trailer park, and gave police turn-by-turn directions to where the truck was located.

When police arrived, they saw a black Chevy truck in the driveway that was damaged.

A man in the driver's seat, who didn't smell of intoxicants, said the owner of the vehicle was inside.

The owner of the truck, Stanley, said he had been home for two hours. Stanley smelled of intoxicants.

Stanley was in his boxer shorts and a T-shirt and told police he had been drinking Rumple Minze at the residence.

Stanley failed field sobriety tests. Police asked the man to get dressed so he could be taken to the jail.

The officer observed that Stanley's pants were wet, and Stanley said he had been in the snow.

Stanley has prior drunken driving convictions for offenses that occurred on May 19, 1996; March 6, 1997; June 13, 1999; July 25, 1999; June 26, 2001; July 15, 2001; Feb. 4, 2004; Dec. 28, 2007.
