In Brown County, authorities were in Hobart and Lawrence on Friday, and De Pere on Saturday. A person with two kids in their vehicle was arrested for 4th offense OWI, during those patrols.

For the first time, Manitowoc County operated an OWI Task Force. Officers arrested a 19-year-old for drunken driving after watching the driver go through a stoplight at 40 miles per hour with 4 minors in the vehicle.

Fox Valley's OWI Task Force worked on Sunday after the Packers-Cardinals game in the Appleton area. Officers arrested a person for 5th offense OWI, along with having an outstanding warrant from 2005 for failure to appear for an OWI citation.
