Preliminary Hearing for Alleged Repeat Drunk Driver
A Marinette man is court on a repeat drunk driving charge. A preliminary hearing was held Thursday for 36-year-old Kristofer D Lavigne who’s been charged with Operating While Intoxicated 7th, 8th, or 9th. Lavigne was arrested in Marinette last month after a woman called the police stating there was a man she did not know knocking repeatedly on her back door. When police arrived, they found Lavigne, who appeared to be intoxicated at the time, as well as the vehicle he was driving in the woman’s yard. Lavigne failed a field sobriety test and was later transported to Bay Area Medical Center for a blood draw. He has seven previous drunk driving convictions in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota. His arraignment is now scheduled for March 1st.
