Troopers boost drunken-driving patrols for the Superbowl…

Fair warning: The Washington State Patrol is boosting patrols this weekend in order to crack down on drunken Superbowl fans who get behind the wheel. In Spokane, they’re teaming up with Idaho and Montana troopers for a three-state sweep.

“We don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun,” Chief John Batiste said in a press release. “But getting in a collision is not the way to celebrate a major sporting event.”
