Story By Associated Press

WAUPACA COUNTY - State Troopers expect to catch drunk drivers, but they don't expect to see the same ones again and again.

That's what happened Sunday.

Troopers from the Wausau post arrested a man now accused of his 11th drunk driving offense.

They pulled over 42 year old Scott Hein of Waupaca.

State police say Hein was pulled over for speeding around just before 7pm, that led to his latest drunk driving arrest.
