Police Reserve Catches Another at Riverside Park
La Crosse police reserves are once again on the case in Riverside Park. Summertime shifts for Operation Riverwatch belong mostly to reserves because the college student-led organization loses most of its volunteers during summer months. A police reserve was the one who nabbed a Galesville guy this week-end in the park before he could get in any trouble. the 21 year-old was stumbling drunk in the park early Saturday morning near bar time when he was spotted by a reserve who then hailed a nearby officer. The guy thought he was near Myrick Park and UWL and was looking for a duplex. Pretty solidly drunk, says the officer, who handed the guy his first public intoxication warning.
