KENOSHA, WI–A Kenosha police officer will have to report to jail next week after pleading guilty to operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing injury. Sergeant Greg Munnelly entered the guilty plea in Milwaukee County Court Wednesday. He was arrested in November 2017 in Oak Creek after he rear ended another car.
The driver of that vehicle suffered a concussion as well as back and knee injuries. Munnelly refused to take field sobriety tests and his blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit. Munnelly, who is a 19 year vet of the department, apologized during Wednesday’s hearing, saying he accepts full responsibility for his actions. Still his attorney says he expects to be fired.
He will spend 40 days in jail and his license has been revoked for a year. Kenosha Police are expected to release a statement on Munnelly later today.
