— A rural Beloit man is being held in Rock County Jail on a cash bond after being charged Monday with seventh-offense drunken driving after a Sunday night crash.

James K. Bremel, 40, of 7640 S. Luther Valley Road, Beloit, also was charged with driving with a revoked license, according to the criminal complaint filed in Rock County Court. Commissioner Charles Holznecht set a $1,500 cash bond and ordered Bremel not to consumed alcohol.


Rock County Sheriff's Office deputies and Orfordville fire and EMS responded at 6:29 p.m. Sunday to Bremel's home in Newark Township west of Beloit. A person had called 911 to report a vehicle crashed into a tree near the intersection of Luther Valley Road and Grove School Road.


The driver walked away from the crash, but the license plate on the vehicle was registered to Bremel's address, according to the criminal complaint.


When emergency crews arrived, they found Bremel standing in the driveway and bleeding from his mouth and head, according to the news release. He shouted and was uncooperative with emergency medical staff. Bremel was transported to Beloit Memorial Hospital, Beloit, where he was uncooperative with emergency room staff, according to the complaint.


Hospital staff reported Bremel's blood-alcohol level was 0.30, according to the complaint.


Bremel is scheduled to be back in court June 13 for an adjourned initial appearance.
