A 20-year-old Mequon man seemingly took punishment for his misconduct into his own hands Saturday during a traffic stop.
The man was pulled over by police for speeding near Pilgrim Road and Main Street. While conducting the stop, the man began stabbing himself in the neck with his car keys causing injury to himself. The man resisted officers as they attempted to restrain him for his own safety.
The man had a blood-alcohol level of 0.27 at the hospital, and was transported to the Froedtert Intensive Care Unit to receive medical treatment.
