A lawmaker is scheduled to appear in Columbia County Circuit Court on Wednesday to face drunken driving and marijuana charges.
Rep. Jeffrey Wood, an independent from Bloomer, is scheduled to make his initial appearance on charges of third-offense operating while intoxicated, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Wood was arrested in December while making a 200-mile drive home after a night of drinking in Madison.
Drivers called 911 to report Wood's erratic driving, which included smashing into a highway sign. A state trooper found Wood urinating on the shoulder of Interstate 39-90 and arrested him. A search of his vehicle turned up two bags of marijuana.
Wood has apologized for poor judgment but resisted calls to resign.
