FRIENDSHIP, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a Wisconsin man suspected of his 10th drunken driving offense is blaming a Wisconsin tradition for his latest legal troubles.

A criminal complaint filed in Adams County says 75-year-old John Przybyla (priz-ih-BIL’-ah) told the deputy that stopped him that the reason he smelled like alcohol is because he had been at a fish fry and had eaten beer-battered fish.

A complaint says the deputy had spotted Przybyla make a U-turn on Highway 13 in Dell Prairie last October, followed his vehicle and discovered he had a revoked license. He was taken to a hospital in Adams for a blood test. WSAW-TV (https://bit.ly/1B8yXE4 ) reports Przybyla has previous conviction in Milwaukee, Adams, and Columbia counties dating back to 1995.

A Jan. 21 preliminary hearing has been scheduled. Court records do not list a defense attorney.
