Waukesha man pleads not guilty to driving wrong-way for 15 miles on I-43-94

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Waukesha man pleaded not guilty Wednesday morning to felony reckless endangerment, for allegedly driving 15 miles the wrong way on a Milwaukee freeway.

Authorities said it was at least the 33rd time this year that a driver was caught going the wrong way on a major street or freeway – and some of those incidents were deadly.

In the latest case, sheriff’s officers said 21-year-old Joshua Klawikowski was drunk when they caught him driving south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 43-94 at the downtown Marquette Interchange.

Officials said he never stopped until he got to the College Avenue exit, a short distance beyond Mitchell International Airport. He reportedly had a blood alcohol level of almost twice the allowable limit.

Klawikowski waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday morning in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. He’s due back in court December 6th, when a trial date is expected to be set.

Klawikowski is free on a $2,500 signature bond.
