A Janesville man has been charged with fourth-offense intoxicated driving after a crash in the 200 block of Joliet Street on the city’s south side Friday.

Shane A. Clark, 38, of 1611 S. Oakhill Ave. was driving a vehicle that had extensive passenger-side damage, including a tire torn from the vehicle, when police arrived, according to the criminal complaint.

Clark was not injured. He showed signs of intoxication and told an officer he was drinking and might have been looking at his phone, according to the complaint.

A court commissioner Monday ordered a $500 cash bond and that Clark remain sober while his case is pending.

Clark’s previous arrests for intoxicated driving were in 2002, 2010 and 2012, according to the complaint.
