Sheriff's officials arrest second wrong-way driver in less than a week

MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee County Sheriff’s deputy arrested 30-year-old Adam Bruno of Hales Corners Tuesday morning, April 3rd just before 2:00 a.m., after observing Bruno headed the wrong way westbound in the eastbound lanes of I-94 at 60th Street. This is the second wrong way driver to be arrested in less than a week.

Sheriff's officials say Bruno pulled into a construction area and stopped near that location only after a tow truck driver flashed his yellow lights. Several squads responded to the scene.

Bruno was taken to the patrol substation where he blew a .18 on the intoximeter, more than twice the legal limit. Deputies also recovered a marijuana pipe on the floor of Bruno’s vehicle. He was ticketed for first OWI and arrested for a Class C misdemeanor charge of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and a Class G felony charge of second degree Reckless Endangering Safety.

Bruno faces a six to nine month revocation of his license on the first OWI charge, 30 days in jail on the Possession of Drug Paraphernalia charge, and up to 10 years in prison on the felony charge.

Rachel Kuebbing was charged Monday, April 2nd with a felony and faces up to 10 years in prison for driving the wrong-way on the freeway while drunk on March 29, 2012.
