TOWN OF WINDSOR, Wis. (AP) -- Two drivers in separate incidents have each been arrested on tentative charges of sixth-offense drunken driving.

A Wisconsin State Journal report (http://bit.ly/1auO8gX ) says the first arrest happened Friday about 4:45 p.m. Police say a 60-year-old New Glarus man tried to turn into a driveway and drove into the path of another vehicle.

The New Glarus man was injured, and three people in the other vehicle, including a 1-year-old boy were apparently OK.

The man was arrested on tentative charges including sixth-offense drunken driving.

About five hours later, a 31-year-old Dane County woman was arrested after striking a parked vehicle. The DeForest woman was also tentatively charged with a sixth drunken-driving offense as well as suspicion of inattentive driving.
