Nathan Mueller

CHIPPEWA FALLS -- A Chippewa Falls man has been charged with his fifth drunken-driving offense in Chippewa County Court.

Nathan T. Mueller, 31, 341 W. Canal St., was stopped at 1:23 a.m. Jan. 10 after a police officer observed he had a defective brake lamp. Mueller smelled of intoxicants and failed field sobriety tests. A preliminary breath test showed he had a 0.210 blood alcohol level, which was confirmed by a blood draw.

Mueller will appear in court today. He was convicted of his fourth drunken-driving offense in February 2018 and was ordered to serve one year in jail, court records show.
