A 31-year-old Prairie du Chien man has been charged in Crawford County Circuit Court with one count of possession of marijuana—second and subsequent offense, one count of possession of methamphetamine, one count of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated—fifth or sixth offense, and one count of operating while revoked.
Michael J. Seitz faces up to $32,500 in fines and 14 years of imprisonment of convicted of all counts.
According to the criminal complaint, a Prairie du Chien police officer stopped the Seitz vehicle near East Taylor Street on July 6. A search revealed a plastic baggie of marijuana, and several baggies of meth, along with various items of drug paraphernalia.
Seitz also admitted to the police officer that he had smoked marijuana about two hours prior to the traffic stop, the complaint said.
Seitz has previously been convicted of OWI four times and possession of marijuana once, according the complaint.
