A 50-year-old Wauwatosa man faces his sixth drunken driving offense after New Berlin police say he crashed into a Harley-Davidson motorcycle last week at Mustang Shelly’s bar on National Avenue.
Scott R. Long was charged Thursday in Waukesha County Circuit Court with operating while intoxicated-sixth offense and obstructing an officer. He faces more than three years in prison and $20,000 in fines if convicted.
Long crashed his vehicle into the motorcycle at the bar on Aug. 28, which was busy for the Harley-Davidson celebration. Bar patrons took his keys away and detained him until police arrived, according to the criminal complaint.
Long had trouble articulating his thoughts and was swaying, even though he was seated, the complaint states. He was unable to tell New Berlin police where he was coming form, but he admitted to being drunk.
Long also admitted to bumping the motorcycle, telling police he didn’t think he damage the Harley-Davidson. He also said the other bar patrons were being “mean to him,” the complaint states.
The motorcycle had scuff marks and a severely bent mirror and kick stand.
Long gave police the wrong name when they were trying to learn more information about the case states, but he finally revealed his name after officers confronted him, the complaint states.
Long was having difficulties with his field sobriety tests and quit the tests, telling the officers he was too drunk to finish and that they should just arrest him, the complaint states. His blood has been sent to a state lab for analysis.
Long previously was convicted of drunken driving in June 1994, February 1995, June 2000, September 2001 and April 2006.
