DNR And Police Team Up To Spot Drunken Boaters
The goal is 'dry water'...

Those officers will be checking on boats today through Sunday, ready with tickets and warnings. Last year, 87 boating accidents were recorded in Wisconsin, leading to 13 deaths. Nearly all those deaths resulted from drowning.
