Suspect charged with bail jumping
A Waupaca man whose bond required him to maintain absolute sobriety was arrested twice in two days for drinking.
Harris L. Holtane, 42, faces two counts of felony bail jumping for two separate incidents.
Shortly after 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 18, Waupaca Police Officer Ryan Makuski and Waupaca County Deputy Clint Thobaben responded to a complaint at the corner of Berlin and Lake streets.
A 911 caller reported that a man was passed out in a yard on the side of the road.
According to the criminal complaint, Holtane was very intoxicated and Thobaben tried multiple times to wake him up.
The officers arrested Holtane.
He was released Aug. 19 after posting a $500 cash bond with the condition that he maintain absolute sobriety.
On Aug. 20, Waupaca County Deputy Adam Lange was on County Trunk E in the town of Lind when he saw a 2001 Buick with only its parking lights on.
He later found the Buick in a driveway on County E.
Deputies James Santiago and Lange attempted to contact residents of the home on County E. Eventually, Holtane answered the door and stepped outside.
Lange reported noticing a strong odor of alcohol. A preliminary breath test indicated that Holtane had a .113 blood-alcohol content.
Holtane was arrested, then released on a $500 cash bond.
At the time of his Aug. 18 arrest, Holtane was out on a $2,000 signature bond. He was charged April 1 with a fourth offense of operating with a prohibited alcohol content.
Due to prior convictions, Holtane’s legal limit was 0.02 BAC at the time of his April 1 arrest. He allegedly had a .029 BAC.
