At 10:14 p.m. a Washington County Sheriff’s deputy on routine patrol stopped a vehicle in Sandy Knoll Park for an after-hours violation. The vehicle was driven by a 17-year-old City of Fond du Lac male with another 15-year-old Town of Trenton male juvenile as a passenger.

The diver was cited and both subjects were turned over to responsible parties.
At 10:32 p.m. deputies responded to the Holy Hill Church for a report of a suspicious vehicle. Responding deputies located the vehicle stopped along STH 167. The vehicle was operated by a 30-year-old Menomonee Falls man with a 25-year-old City of Milwaukee man as a passenger. The driver was arrested for suspected drug OWI and operation without a valid driver’s license.
At 11:47 p.m. a deputy located a vehicle in Ackerman Grove County Park after hours driven by a 17-year-old City of West Bend female and also occupied by two 16-year-old males, one from the City of West Bend and the other from the Town of Trenton. The deputy noted the odor of marijuana inside the car; one of the male juveniles admitted to smoking the drug.

At 12:35 a.m. deputies responded to the area of Mohawk Rd. and Fairview Dr. in the Town of Wayne for a personal injury accident.
