New Ulm man charged in western Wisconsin for DWI, fake hand-painted license plates

A New Ulm man is charged in western Wisconsin not only with drunken driving, but also for having hand-painted, fake license plates on his vehicle.

Officers pulled over 27-year-old Nicholas Layton last Friday night, after he’d been spotted weaving through downtown Chippewa Falls. Layton failed a field sobriety test and his plates came back as not registered to the vehicle – and in fact were hand-painted on the back of a Hamm’s beer box – but authorities say they were quite realistic.

Layton has a court date April 7th.
