"Under the Influence" -Tom Mayworm

  • Print

Meet Tom Mayworm.

Milwaukee County Sheriff's deputies are seeking OWI-4th against the 47 year old.

Yesterday sheriff's deputies were dispatched to an abandoned vehicle involved in a one car crash on southbound I-43 at Loomis Road.  The vehicle appeared to have struck a tree adjacent to the ramp.

Deputies went to the owner's home in new Berlin and arrested Tom Mayworm after he admitted driving the vehicle when it hit the tree.  His girlfriend had been driving behind him and brought him home after the crash. Mayworm's blood alcohol content was .28, more than three times the legal limit.

If convicted Mayworm faces up to one year imprisonment. One year!

When Mayworm got behind the wheel drunk for at least the fourth time he put all of us in danger. Part of the problem with guys like Tom Mayworm is that he takes a chance on killing any one of us each time he decides to drink and drive.

We are working with legislators and law enforcement officials to put a stop to it.
