Peg Lautenschlager Award Nominee

Wow. Just wow.

The most amazing thing about this tale of a woman racking up three OWI arrests in three days (two in Sheboygan and one just outside Madison) is that she was from out-of-state. She was visiting Wisconsin from Spokane, Washington.

I'm assuming that she was born and raised here and was back visiting relatives. Either that, or our lenient drunk driving laws are attracting hard-core drunks from halfway across the country who want the thrill of consuming boxed wine while driving into a ditch. It's the new Wisconsin sport, supplanting cow-tipping in the imaginations of urban sophisticates.

Her three arrests resulted in a total of $1857 in fines and 12 hours in jail for the drunk driving, plus $372 for resisting an officer.

When in Sheboygan, do as the Sheboyganites do.
