Dane Co. Sheriff’s Office makes Felony OWI arrest involving firearm

MADISON (WKOW) — The Dane County Sheriff’s Office released a report on Monday about a Felony OWI Arrest.

On Saturday, September 1, authorities say a Waunakee man was arrested on felony charges for a 911 call to report an intoxicated man acting strangely in the parking lot of a restaurant in the town of Westport.

Dane County Sheriff’s deputies responded to 5360 Westport Road just before 7:00 pm, and before they arrived, 38-year-old Cody J. Goen of Waunakee had left his vehicle and entered the Yahara River. Deputies and witnesses were able to convince the suspect to come back to land.

Deputies searched Goen and say they found an empty leather firearm holster. A further search of his vehicle uncovered a fully loaded semi-automatic handgun. After being transported to a local hospital for medical clearance, Goen was booked in to the Dane County Jail on tentative charges of OWI – 4th offense, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, and Resisting.
