Village of Lannon - Charles Mossman was charged with hitting Donna Reuter’s car and causing injury to her while driving intoxicated, then proceeding to drive away from the scene on Friday, July 22, in Lannon, according to the criminal complaint.
This is Mossman’s fourth offense of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated in five years.
