WINONA, Minn. — A burned-out headlight led to a La Crescent man’s fourth DWI charge since 2005.
A Winona County sheriff’s deputy stopped Daniel Lee Schossow, 26, on U.S. Hwy. 61 south of Twin Bluffs about 11:30 p.m Wednesday for driving with a burned-out headlight. When the deputy approached the vehicle, he observed that Schossow appeared to have been drinking, which was confirmed by a field sobriety test.
Schossow was arrested and taken to the Winona County Law Enforcement Center, where he refused to submit to a breath, blood or urine test. Charges of first-degree drunken driving and first-degree test refusal have been referred against Schossow to the Winona County Attorney’s office, said Winona County Chief Deputy Ron Ganrude.
Schossow was convicted of drunken driving in August 2005, June 2008 and September 2010. He was convicted of driving after revocation in April 2010.
