A man who a sheriff?s deputy saw drive through a ditch to get to a gas station parking lot Saturday night faces his fifth drunken driving charge, according to a release.
Just before 10 p.m. a Rock County sheriff?s deputy was putting gas in his squad car at Jake?s Mobil on South Highway 51 when he saw Brian R. Hunt, 49, of Janesville, attempt to turn into the gas station parking lot, officials said.
Hunt missed the driveway, drove through the ditch to get into the parking lot and pulled into a parking stall, according to the release.
The deputy went to talk with Hunt and could smell alcohol on his breath, officials said. Hunt failed field sobriety tests and was arrested for felony fifth-offense operating while intoxicated, and was also issued a citation for inattentive driving.
Hunt will be in jail court Monday afternoon.
