Ex-Superior Mayor Herb Bergson convicted of 2nd OWI

BARABOO, WI (WTAQ) - Former Superior and Duluth Mayor Herb Bergson is serving a 22-day jail sentence in southern Wisconsin.  

That's after a Sauk County jury found him guilty of his second drunk driving incident.  

It happened in May of 2012 in Baraboo. Bergson must also pay a $1,200 fine. He'll also lose his driver's license for 15 months.  

Bergson was a long-time police official and mayor in Superior, before he was elected as Duluth's mayor. He was in that office when he was picked up for OWI following an accident in Washburn County in northwest Wisconsin.  

Bergson lost his re-election bid in a primary in 2007.  

He also faces a trial in Dane County for a third drunk driving arrest from last September. Bergson has a pre-trial hearing in that case on February 12th.
