Woman arrested for OWI on Peach Avenue
At 2:09 a.m. a vehicle was in the right turn lane at the intersection of Becker Road and Peach Avenue. When the light turned green and the driver had the right of way, it took approximately eight seconds for the driver to make an illegal left turn onto Peach. The vehicle made a short turn and drove for 20 feet on the center line of the road. An officer on routine patrol observed the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop.
The officer made contact with the driver, a 50-year-old Marshfield woman, who identified herself verbally. The woman smelled strongly of intoxicants and had glossy eyes.
The woman performed field sobriety tests and registered a reading of 0.097 on a preliminary breath test (PBT). The officer arrested the woman and issued her a citation for Operating While under the Influence (OWI).

Wisconsin Rapids woman cited for OWI, second offense
While on patrol an officer observed a vehicle on the 500 block of W. Upham St. traveling almost completely in the oncoming lane of traffic at 2:19 a.m. The officer conducted a traffic stop; made contact with the driver, a 37-year-old Wisconsin Rapids woman; and identified her by her Wisconsin driver’s license.
The woman had a moderate odor of intoxicants coming from her. She stated she was on her phone, which caused her poor driving.
The woman performed a field sobriety test poorly and then refused to submit to a PBT reading. The officer read the “Informing the Accused” form verbatim. The woman also refused a legal blood draw. A search warrant was obtained, and the blood draw was completed. The woman was issued a citation for OWI, second offense.

Fourth St. reported that since Thursday, Jan. 22, she had received 35 voice messages on her personal/work phone from a 35-year-old Stevens Point man. The woman stated the messages were nonthreatening but wanted them to stop since they had no connection with her business.
Police contacted the man and told him to cease contact with the woman and her business. No further action was taken.
Marshfield woman reports harassment
At 6:52 p.m. a 50-year-old Marshfield woman reported that she had been harassed and threatened by a 26-year-old Marshfield woman. The 26-year-old came to the 50-year-old’s house on the 1100 block of E. Doege St. and said she was going to poison the 50-year-old’s dog and break the windshield wipers off the 50-year-old’s car. The 50-year-old also reported receiving unwanted text messages from the 26-year-old.
Up until last week, the 50-year-old was caring for the 26-year-old’s 1-year-old daughter, and the 50-year-old noticed bruising on the buttocks of the child numerous times. Because the 26-year-old resides outside Marshfield jurisdiction, Wood County was notified and requested to check on the welfare of the child.
Both parties were unclear as to how the dispute started. Police told both parties they should have no further contact.
