The cops were out in full force the night of the most recent Packers game. In an attempt to crack down on allegedly drunk drivers, police set up a task force. Over the course of the evening, four people were arrested on drunk driving charges in Brown County, including a 17-year-old girl.
An officer who was driving south on Highway 41 in an Ashwaubenon public safety squad car says that the girl was driving the wrong way. He claims he saw headlights coming at him, so pulled out of the way, turned around and then pulled the teen over. The police claim she was drunk and driving at 70 mph on the wrong side of the highway.
After testing, it was apparently determined that the girl's blood-alcohol level was .174. She was charged with OWI, driving with an open intoxicant, driving the wrong way on a highway, and driving without a license, insurance or registration.
At this point it's not clear what form of punishment the teen, who is from Kenosha, could be facing. Under Wisconsin law, juveniles who are 17 years old are automatically taken into adult court.
Police have been teaming up against intoxicated drivers recently. The Wisconsin State Patrol has headed the OWI Task Force, which in addition to four arrests issued several traffic citations, including two open intoxicant citations. They also cracked down on speeders over the weekend, issuing 30 citations to people they say were traveling over 80 mph.
