Can I Be Arrested For An OWI Even If I Wasn't Driving
Yes, sometimes! Wisconsin utilizes the term "operating," not just "driving," when it comes to OWI related matters. The term "operating" has a broader definition than "driving," and is construed to include driving behavior. It has been defined as the "actual physical handling of the controls of a motor vehicle." Wisconsin's statute defines operate as "the physical manipulation or activation of any of the controls of a motor vehicle necessary to put it in motion."
