JEFFERSON - The Wisconsin State Patrol says that former state Democratic Party spokesman Graeme Zielinski's blood alcohol concentration was .239 when he was arrested.

Court records show he was arrested for drunk driving in Lake Mills on the late afternoon of June 2nd.

The State Patrol's report said that he had "admitted to drinking five beers before leaving Madison."

He also failed numerous parts of the drunk driving test administered outside his car.

Records indicate it is his third drunk driving offense.

He resigned from the Democratic Party earlier in 2013.

He came under fire after comparing Governor Scott Walker to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
