New report indicates lawmaker had two previous OWIs
Rep. Jeff Wood's drunken driving arrest was widely reported to be his first, but the independent from Bloomer admits being caught before and a new report said he was nabbed twice in Eau Claire County in 1990-91.
Even though it was so long ago, Columbia County District Attorney Jane Kohlwey says she'll have no choice but to charge Wood with third-offense operating while intoxicated which carries a one-year jail term and a fine of up to $2,000 dollars.
