— Within 13 hours of being arrested a fifth time on a charge of intoxicated driving, a Janesville man was arrested a sixth time.

Michael O. Wescott, 44, of 112 1/2 Mineral Point Ave., was pulled over and arrested at 3:21 p.m. Monday at Main and Racine streets in Janesville.


At 2:50 a.m. Tuesday, Wescott was arrested at Milton Avenue and Hyatt Street in Janesville.


Wescott failed field sobriety tests after both traffic stops, but preliminary breath tests did not show the presence of alcohol, police reported.


Wescott told officers he had taken prescription medication in the past to relieve pain. Police are awaiting results of blood tests to find out what substance, if any, affected Wescott’s driving.


Both arrests are on felony charges.
