This morning at approximately 1:53 am, Dane County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a suspicious vehicle call on the 300 block of Oriole Lane in the Village of Cambridge. A female at the residence was awakened to the sound of the doorbell ringing. When she looked outside to see who it could be, she did not recognize the Silverado pick-up truck in the driveway and called authorities. When the deputies responded, they found Mark E. Radle, age 37 of Lake Mills, passed out behind the wheel. Radle, who was uncooperative with deputies, was arrested for OWI – 4th Offense. He was also cited for Possession of THC and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Radle is currently being held in the Dane County Jail. In addition, five other drivers were cited for Operating While Intoxicated between Friday evening and Sunday night. In an incident on Saturday morning, a 30-year-old Minnesota man was cited for his 2nd Offense after he struck a tree at Old Sauk Road and Twin Valley Road in the town of Middleton. He was not seriously injured in the crash, but was transported to UW Hospital for a blood draw. ###
