K9 Cop Helps With OWI Arrest
At least partial credit for running down a repeat drunk driver this week-end goes to Brutus, the police dog. Early Sunday morning, a La Crosse cop chased a car from downtown to Isle La Plume. Then, the cop chased the driver out onto the ice at the Municipal Boat Harbor but gave up when the ice started cracking. Enter Brutus. The K-9 cop sniffed out the guy hiding under a tarp on a boat. Cops collared 26 year-old Craig Karrigan for his fifth OWI. They added a concealed weapons charge after getting a folding knife off of him.
