JUNEAU – A 34-year-old Mayville man was charged with his fifth drunken driving offense after an argument with his girlfriend ended with her standing on the side of the road near Hustisford calling 911 for help.
Anthony B. Juggan, 466 Grove St., was charged with his fifth offense of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, police were alerted to Juggan driving drunk on Nov. 18, when they received a call at 1:31 from a woman claiming to be his girlfriend. The caller claimed she had gotten out of her boyfriend’s vehicle after he grabbed her face during a fight. She was having difficulty figuring out where she was.
The complaint states that officers located Juggan driving toward his residence in Mayville at 1:42 a.m. An officer attempted to stop Juggan. However, Juggan accelerated away from the officer at a “dangerous and high rate of speed.”
According to the complaint, Juggan parked in his driveway and walked to his front door, ignoring the officer’s commands to stop. The officer detained Juggan until backup arrived. Juggan failed field sobriety tests and refused to submit to a preliminary breath test at the scene. A test at the jail at 3:30 a.m. showed that he had a .21 blood alcohol concentration.
Juggan was previously convicted of drunken driving in 1998, 1999 and twice in 2000.
