A 49-year-old Tomah man was referred to the Monroe County District Attorney for sixth-offense operating a vehicle under the influence of a restricted substance after an Aug. 30 traffic stop in the town of Glendale.

Shortly after 9:25 p.m., police pulled over a southbound vehicle driven by William Patrick McCabe on Hwy. 27 for a defective registration lamp. The report says the officer who approached the vehicle could immediately detect the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and that McCabe’s eyes were glazed.
