"Under the Influence"- Steven Olson
This is Steven Olson.
He is dangerous. he needs to get help, and he needs to get locked up.
The Milwaukee County Sheriff's office arrested the 27 year old last night after observing him driving around without his headlights on. Deputies believe he was intoxicated. He was arrested for OWI-4th. His fourth drunk driving offense.. in five years.
Because of his prior convictions, Olson is required to drive a car with an ignition interlock device. He was in a vehicle that did not have the device. The person who owns the car is also likely to face charges for allowing Olson to drive it.
Olson is the 729th repeat offender since January 2010.
Wisconsin is the only state in the nation where first time drunk driving is not a crime. THE ONLY STATE. That needs to change. We are working with elected officials, including Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, and state legislator Jim Ott to change the law. It's time for a change.
