Sun Prairie Police Department Media Release

From: Sgt. Jason Lefeber
Date: August 12th, 2019
Subject: Felony OWI Arrest

At approximately 9:27 pm on Sunday, August 11th, a Sun Prairie officer observed a vehicle driving recklessly in the Walmart parking lot. The officer recognized the driver as Jimmy Chaney. A records
check of Chaney showed Chaney does not hold a valid driver’s license. A traffic stop was initiated after the vehicle left the parking lot.

While pulling over for the traffic stop, Chaney went into the BP gas station at 1705 W. Main St. where he struck a cement post which is positioned in front of the gas pumps. No significant damage was done to the post, but there was damage to the vehicle.

Chaney, age 38 of Sun Prairie, was subsequently arrested for OWI-6th Offense, a felony. He was booked into the Dane County Jail on the felony OWI charge and a probation hold.

Pursuant to the directive of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3.6, Trial Publicity, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
