A passenger in the vehicle, an Irma man, 49, was also arrested on a drug charge.
The dispatch center was kept busy last week with people reporting controlled burns. A complete snow cover removed the DNR burning rules and caused many people to call saying they were burning brush piles. In total, 49 people reported their burns while deputies responded to several reports of smoke in well-traveled areas that were not reported. You are reminded if you plan on burning in a high traffic area you should call the dispatch center prior to burning.
Five people reported striking deer this past week.
