Christopher Wightman drinks in La Crosse, insists to cops he's in Superior
Talk about getting mixed up after a few drinks: University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student Christopher Wightman allegedly tied one on and was convinced he was almost 240 miles away in Superior.
According to La Crosse police, they chased the 20-year-old Green Bay man through Riverside Park the other night. When they caught up with him, he insisted that he was on the shores of the greatest of the Great Lakes.
Wightman blew 0.14 in a preliminary alcohol breath test, was cited for underage drinking, carrying a fake ID, and being in the park after hours, and driven to his dorm, police said. No word on where he thought he was when he woke up the next day.
