Over the weekend Officer Schoenwetter made an arrest for 4th Offense OWI-Operating While Intoxicated. The registration plates on the suspect vehicle, did not match the vehicle. Upon inspection, the plates were not real plates at all................Maybe they are legal in the THE LAND OF SKY BLUE WATERS just not here in Chippewa Falls!!!
