If this happy looking man appears relieved, it is because he is. Daniel L. Shilts Jr., 36, of Waldo, Wisconsin was arrested after his fifth DWI and then urinated on the back of the head of the officer taking him to jail. Officers spotted him driving erratically and striking a pole. Then things went from bad to much much worse . . .
On the way to the station, Shilts decided to relieve himself. It is not clear whether he intended to hit the officer in the back of the head. However, he was convicted of felony counts of operating while intoxicated and bail jumping tied to other pending cases. Remarkably, he will be allowed to drive again. He was sentenced to a year in prison, three years probation, $3,599 in fines, and his license was revoked for three years. That will result in less than a year in jail. A felony count of expelling bodily substances at a public safety worker was dropped.
That is one good defense attorney.
