Wrong way driver arrested on I-94 for third OWI, four children in car

MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee County Sheriff's deputy arrested a 33-year-old woman for her third OWI after the deputy says she was driving the wrong way in the distress lane near I-94 and the Zoo Interchange with four children in the car Saturday evening.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's deputy says 33-year-old Shelly Greeson had four children between the ages of four and eight in the car with her and she had been headed westbound, spun out of control and ended up facing eastbound when the deputy arrived.

The sheriff's deputy says Greeson was uncooperative and confused. The deputy observed signs of intoxication and arrested Greeson for her third OWI with children under 16 years of age. Officials say Greeson's blood alcohol level was .18 - more than twice the legal limit.

Greeson's previous OWI offenses occurred in February 2001 and September 2002.

Greeson faces felony OWI-third offense with child under 16 years of age charges which carry a maximum penalty of up to one year in jail and two to three years of license revocation and a requirement to install an ignition interlock device. She also faces misdemeanor charges of reckless driving with a penalty of up to one year in jail.
