Three men may be cited after fashioning an old refrigerator into a tow behind on an ATV over the weekend.
The Lincoln County Rec. Deputy was patrolling on County Road H in the Town of Skanawan when he saw an ATV being trailed by a shower of sparks. Upon closer inspection he found the ATV was towing a hollowed out refrigerator with two adult passengers inside.
Marks on the ground indicated that the trio had made several laps around the road prior to the deputy’s arrival.
The men; one from Gleason and two from Wausau admitted to drinking but none of them were found to be legally intoxicated. They agreed to push their ATV home and pick up the refrigerator later that day.
The Rec. Deputy noted the stretch of road is open to ATV traffic but a citation for operation in a careless manner is likely.
