BWI's on the Rise
According to officials in and around the Twin Cities of Minnesota, high gas prices have led to more BWI's or "Boating While Intoxicated" arrests. The Hennepin County Water Patrol has made over 60 arrests this summer, mostly on Lake Minnetonka. The theory is, more people stay anchored because of the price of gas. The captains or drivers then end up drinking with other boaters, instead of touring the lakes.
