PORTAGE COUNTY (WAOW)--A Portage County woman accused of driving the wrong way on I-39 has been charged. 62-year-old Shirley Hogrefe was arrested earlier this month. She faces her fifth Owl charge.

According to court documents, Hogrefe told officials she intentionally drove on the wrong side of the highway. They say that was after she made threats against herself.

The documents also say she admitted to drinking too much. Her attorney was unavailable for comment. Hogrefe remains in jail on a $25,000 cash bond. She is set to appear in court next month.
