A Sheboygan man with a fourth drunken driving charge pending is facing new charge after failing a breathalyzer test, then claiming the test result was from eating a Jack Daniels steak, according to a criminal complaint.
Ian A. Baker, 23, of 1229 Trimberger Court, was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor bail jumping, which carries a maximum penalty of nine months in jail. Here's what happened, no joke. According to the complaint:
Baker came to his court-ordered intoxicated driver intervention program Monday morning and blew a blood-alcohol level of 0.07 on a breath test. He then denied drinking any alcohol and blamed the test result on eating a Jack Daniels steak the night before.
Baker was charged in July with the fourth-offense OWI and released on a $1,500 signature bond that forbade alcohol consumption.
