Is it possible to be charged with drunk driving, if you’re not technically driving? A crash this week on Madison’s Beltline resulted in a drunk driving charge – for a passenger. Christopher Bivens of Monona was arrested early Monday morning after fleeing the scene of the wreck. Although he was the passenger in the car, the 22 year-old Bivens, who was drunk at the time had control after grabbing the wheel from his driver. That action caused the car to strike a concrete barrier, and earned Bivens a citation for drunk driving.
