The 66-year-old Taylor County man convicted of his 11th drunken driving offense will spend four years in prison followed by four years extended supervision.

Investigators said Michael Krug's vehicle crashed around 6 p.m. Feb. 8, near County Highway E and County Highway M in the town of Chelsea. The location is northwest of Medford.

Krug’s criminal complaint stated the responding officer noted signs of alcohol impairment.

Krug’s OWI convictions range from August 1989 to January 2014. At the time of the crash, Krug had a valid license and was driving within his approved hours.

Because of previous OWI convictions, he may not have a blood-alcohol level greater than .02.

He'll receive credit for 103 days already spent in custody.
