While checking his driving history, the trooper discovered Hausding's license was denied/revoked and that he had seven prior OWI convictions.
Hausding was charged with driving while license suspended/revoked and felony operating while intoxicated by the Alpena County Prosecutor.
Hausding waived his arraignment.
His case is pending additional upcoming court hearings.
