Sussex man, with infant daughter in car, charged with OWI

Village of Sussex - A 29-year-old man was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court on Jan. 21 after allegedly crashing his vehicle while intoxicated and injuring his infant daughter on Sunday afternoon.

Ian K. Anderson, N59 W26304 Indian Head Drive, Sussex, was charged with one count operating while intoxicated causing injury, operating with prohibited alcohol concentration causing injury and misdemeanor bail jumping. Anderson was charged with one count of misdemeanor hit-and-run last September.

A police officer said he found the car sitting in a ditch on Richmond Road around 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 20. Anderson was standing on the side of the road holding his daughter, according to the complaint. The officer said in the complaint that the defendant seemed unsteady on his feet, and when asked what happened, he allegedly said he did not remember. The officer noted in the complaint that the defendant allegedly smelled strongly of liquor and his eyes were bloodshot.

The officer asked Anderson if he and his child were OK, and the Anderson said he believed so. Ambulance personnel later noted that the infant's right hand seemed to be bruised and swollen, according to the complaint.

According to the complaint, the officer noticed unopened beers in the vehicle and a water bottle that contained a brown liquid suspected to be alcohol. There were also three red plastic containers Anderson said contained gasoline, including a container on the floor in front of where the child was sitting in his child seat, according to the complaint.

Anderson failed all field sobriety tests conducted and vomited several times before police were able to conduct a breath test according to the complaint, his blood-alcohol was .18; the legal limit in Wisconsin is .08.

If convicted of all counts, Anderson faces up to four years and nine months in prison and up to $18,000 in fines. His next expected court appearance is Jan. 25.
