A 25-year-old Waukesha man is facing drug charges after he crashed his pickup truck into a median wall on I-94 in Milwaukee this month.
Lucas L. Schumacher was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on June 22 with one count of possession of a narcotic drug. If convicted, he faces up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputies were called to I-94 westbound near North 35th Street after Schumacher crashed his truck into the median wall. He was unconscious when officers arrived, but was eventually woken up by the deputies.
Schumacher had a hard time remaining awake and was placed under arrest for operating while intoxicated. He told the deputies he had taken Valium and Oxycodone earlier and when the searched his wallet they discovered three packages of heroin inside.
Schumacher said the heroin was his, but said he didn’t know he had more of the drug because he thought he had snorted it all.
