(Beaver Dam) A West Bend man accused of injuring two others in a drunken driving accident in the Town of Beaver Dam made his initial appearance in a Dodge County courtroom Monday. Michael Sluga was charged Friday with felony counts of Operating While Intoxicated Causing Injury Second Offense and Operating with a Prohibited Alcohol Concentration Causing Injury Second Offense. On February 8, Sluga was traveling west on State Highway 33 when he lost control and collided with a 2000 Ford Focus that was occupied by two individuals. Sluga allegedly admitted to authorities that he consumed alcohol prior to driving. The 35-year-old allegedly blew a point-one-one-two (.112) during a preliminary breath test. The driver of the Ford Focus suffered a broken right arm, dislocated left hip, broken left collar bone and multiple hand lacerations. The passanger suffered a dislocated left hip and a fractured pelvis. If convicted, Sluga faces a maximum 12 year prison sentence. A signature bond was set at $20-thousand dollars and a judge will decide in June if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
