Mayville Man Faces 6th OWI After Crashing Motorcycle

A 47-year old Mayville man is facing his sixth OWI – after crashing a motorcycle along Interstate 41. A passerby reported the bike in the ditch around 6:15pm Saturday night – but didn’t see anyone near it. Washington County Sheriff’s deputies found the man in a nearby field. He was not wearing a helmet and was found bleeding from the head, but was still conscious and able to talk. He claimed to have been walking on the road when he was hit by someone on the motorcycle, but deputies didn’t buy the story and arrested him for sixth offense OWI.
