A Sun Prairie man faces his sixth operating while intoxicated charge after crashing into a cement post during a traffic stop on Sunday, police reported.

The incident began shortly before 9:30 p.m. Sunday when an officer observed a vehicle driving recklessly in the Walmart parking lot and recognized the driver as Jimmy Chaney, who does not hold a valid driver’s license, according to a Sun Prairie police news release.

After the vehicle left the lot, the officers initiated a traffic stop and when pulling over, Chaney went into the BP gas station at 1705 W. Main St. and struck a cement post in front of the gas pumps, damaging the vehicle he was driving, police reported.
