    I finds it real funny about the second person driving drunk it says was advised that a snowmobile had ran into the side of the restaurant located at trappers cabin on aspen street in the community when really the call about him came from someone calling about him almost hitting her at the stop lights uptown on HRR and she told she seen him going into the bar!
