WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) A Weston man will spend 5-years in jail after pleading guilty to an 8th OWI in the last decade.
29-year-old Cole Knapp has been in jail since he was arrested in May, unable to post $15,000 bond.
He was pulled over on Grand Avenue in Rothschild and admitted to police he'd been drinking. There were open beer cans in his car. He tried to flee on foot and was caught a short time later.
He'd served jail time for his most recent OWI from 2010. He was released in February, only to be caught driving drunk three months later.
