Another occurrence of driving under the influence occurred recently where a man got his 4th arrest involving driving under the influence.

At the intersection of the streets Milwaukee and Main there was what witnesses said a loud car crash. The police in Janesville came to the accident and figured out what happened. The people that were able to see the crash said one of the cars was seen veering around in traffic and speeding.
The two victims in the car were a daughter and her mom; they had been getting ready to go for a drive when the man, Teubert, ran into them. After arriving in the accident and hitting the mom and daughter, Teubert went to get away and hit another car that was parked.
The police took the witness statement and found Teubert recovering from his accident at his house. They suspected he was intoxicated so took a blood alcohol content test but there was nothing that came up.
Eventually after questioning Teubert kept falling asleep and he had to tell the police that he ran into the cars and fled because he was high on heroin. He had injected the drug right before going out.
