— Police say a Brodhead man was intoxicated when he crashed an ATV on Saturday, two days after he was arrested on a charge of seventh-offense drunken driving.

Rodney R. Arnsmeier, 49, was in good condition Wednesday afternoon at University Hospital in Madison after Saturday's crash in the N1800 block of Mt. Hope Road. Arnsmeier was driving a Honda 3-wheel ATV when it overturned in a cornfield about a half-mile south of Giese Road, according to the Green County Sheriff's Office.


The state Department of Natural Resources arrested him on a charge of operating an ATV while under the influence.


At about 5:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, a deputy stopped Arnsmeier for traffic violations on Mt. Hope Road at Town Center Road. That stop resulted in Arnsmeier's arrest on charges of seventh-offense drunken driving and operating after revocation and a citation for defective taillights, Chief Deputy Jeff Skatrud said.
