Bostwick Waives Prelim In OWI Injury Crash

5/5/17 – A Waupun man accused of injuring a passenger in a drunken driving crash waived his right to a preliminary hearing yesterday. Donovan Bostwick will head to trial on felony counts of OWI Causing Injury Second Offense and Driving With A Prohibited Alcohol Content Causing Injury Second Offense. A Dodge County Sheriff’s deputy responded to a vehicle rollover on State Highway 49 near the town of Lomira in October. According to the criminal complaint, Bostwick first denied driving the vehicle but later admitted he was indeed the driver. The 22-year-old also reportedly told the officer that he had been drinking a lot. Bostwick’s preliminary breath test was twice the legal limit for driving at point-one-seven-two (.172).   In speaking with the passenger at the scene and in an interview the day after, he allegedly told the officer that both he and Bostwick were drinking vodka, Captain Morgan, Jack Daniels, and Busch Light that night. The passenger was treated at Waupun Memorial for bruising around his shoulders and neck area. Bostwick was taking to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac where he was treated for broken ribs and possible broken vertebra. If convicted, Bostwick faces up to 12 years in prison. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for May 16.
