The criminal complaint said Bartos was arrested early Nov. 24, 2007, in the town of Emerald when a sheriff's deputy passed him on County D and observed his erratic driving. He failed a field sobriety test and recorded a 0.23 reading on a Breathalyzer. The results of a blood test revealed a 0.267 reading.

His driving record since 1991 indicated previous OWI arrests in Eau Claire, St. Croix, Polk, Dunn and Pierce counties and in Arkansas.
