An 18-year-old Platteville man was cited for drunk driving, and his three passengers were cited for underage drinking early Sunday morning.

Police stopped a car driven by Matthew T. Williams for an “unclean back windshield” at Irene Street and South Hickory Street around 1:30 a.m. When a Platteville police officer approached the vehicle, he could smell “a strong odor of intoxicants,” police said.

Williams was cited for drunk driving and operating a vehicle underage with blood alcohol content. His passengers — Samantha A. Shoellhorn, 18, Platteville; Brooks D. McCormick, 18, Harwood Heights, Ill.; and Laken T. Hansen, 18, Platteville — were all cited for underage drinking.
