MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) - A 46-year-old Stratford man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges accusing him of his seventh offense of drunken driving, a crime punishable by more than a decade in prison.

No trial date was immediately set.

James Scott Glenn was arrested March 24 in rural Marathon County when a vehicle was discovered in a ditch, with him sitting in the passenger seat and claiming a friend was driving, according to a criminal complaint.

Glenn claimed his friend was walking westbound on County Road P but a state trooper reported he had saw now one walking and about two miles away a homeowner reported no one had stopped needing help, the complaint said.

Glenn's first conviction for operating while intoxicated happened in January 1994, the complaint said. Two months later, he was convicted of a second offense in Marathon County. The others were in New York in 1997, 2001 and 2009 and in Illinois in 2015.
