• A call for a disturbance outside a Saukville tavern landed a man in jail Saturday, March 3.

Police were called to Rally Time Sports Bar on Dekora Street at 9:11 p.m. for a report of disorderly conduct involving a person who refused to leave the business.

When the police arrived, they spoke with the suspect, a 30-year-old Grafton man, near the smoking area.  

A police report said the man was speaking with two other men who were trying to convince the suspect to leave.

Police noticed the man had slurred speech, a lack of balance and an overall slow response, the report stated. The man told the police he did not cause a scene inside the bar but admitted to drinking that day.

Police discovered the suspect was on parole. The man was arrested and taken to the Ozaukee County jail for violating his parole.
    

In other incidents reported by police:
* Officers saw a vehicle traveling the wrong direction on Ulao Street, a one-way street, as it approached East Green Bay Avenue at 2:04 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 25.

Police followed the vehicle and when it approached a red light at the intersection of East Green Bay Avenue and South Foster Street, it began to creep into the middle of the intersection while the light was still red.

A traffic stop was conducted and the driver was identified as a 37-year-old Port Washington woman.

The woman admitted to having two beers that evening. Officers said they observed that the woman’s eyes were bloodshot and glassy, smelled alcohol coming from her breath and that her speech was slightly slurred.

A preliminary breath test revealed the woman’s blood-alcohol level was .186, more than two times the legal limit.

The woman was arrested and taken to the Ozaukee County jail. She was cited for operating while intoxicated (first offense) and failure to obey a traffic signal.

• Officers were traveling on East Green Bay Avenue at 6:24 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26, when they ran the license plate of the vehicle traveling in front of them and were advised the registered owner had a suspended license. They conducted a traffic stop.
    

The driver was identified as a 19-year-old Sussex woman. She was in the vehicle with an 18-year-old West Bend woman.

During the traffic stop, police smelled a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. Police discovered two multi-colored glass pipes containing burned marijuana residue in the driver’s side compartment.

Two additional glass pipes with burned marijuana residue were found in the glove compartment. Officers also discovered a marijuana grinder containing approximately 1.6 grams of marijuana, the report stated.

The driver admitted the contraband was hers, and she was taken to the Ozaukee County jail.
