MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - A 20-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to causing a traffic death while driving drunk in Manitowoc County.
Codi Olson waived his right to a preliminary hearing, and he entered pleas to felony counts of OWI homicide, and causing death while driving with a suspended license.
Authorities said Olson's vehicle slammed into another on Highway 10 in Manitowoc Rapids on February 16th. 26-year-old Derek Waterman died.
Olson's lawyer asked that a $5,000 bond be reduced in half, claiming he's not a risk of leaving and missing future court appearances. Circuit Judge Gary Bendix said no to the request.
