A New Glarus man was arrested on a charge of fourth-offense intoxicated driving early Saturday morning near Orfordville, according to a Rock County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Deputies found a severely damaged SUV in the middle of Highway 213 near Tollefson Road around 5 a.m. The vehicle had been driven without operating headlamps, according to the release.
The driver was identified as Demetrius M. Jones, 33, of New Glarus. He was not injured.
