Law enforcement across Minnesota is asking people celebrating Halloween this weekend *not* to drink and drive so they don’t create some real-life ghosts. Willmar Police Chief Jim Felt says this weekend has become a scary one. He says, “The Saturday before Halloween has always been it seems like over the past several years a big drinking holiday here, so the Police Department is operating with that in mind.” Chief Felt suggests Halloween revelers arrange for a sober ride home.
Felt says, “In the past we have had an unofficial contest for whoever arrests the person in the most unique Halloween costume. It gets posted on the board for a while.” But authorities say drunk driving is no joke, and even if no one is injured or killed, it comes with heavy penalties.
By the way, it’s illegal to drive with a mask on.
