On Wednesday evening the Langlade County Sheriffs Office received a call about a van that was parked on the side of the road on Highway 64. A deputy approached the vehicle and encountered a woman having trouble with her interlock ignition device, given to people convicted of drunk driving. The 73 year old said she was having problems with the vehicle and pulled it to the side of the road and shut off the engine. She then couldnt pass the test to make it start again. She told the officer she had been stranded for two hours. Officials say she wasnt blowing hard enough. The woman said she was cold and frustrated because she hated gadgets, and officials gave her a ride home.

Several Antigo High School students were also cited for disorderly conduct for swearing at their teacher, or being disruptive in their classes in other ways.
