I found this number to be absolutely staggering, but Minnesota law enforcement have already made 9,944 DWI arrests so far in 2018 -- and we're not even halfway through the year.

This past weekend's 263 statewide DWI busts bring the total to just under 10,000. With the coming Memorial Day weekend ahead, we're sure to put the yearly total far above the 10K mark.

That's so crazy to me. I cannot for the life of me understand why we keep doing this. Drink, have fun, whatever -- but we need to stop getting behind the wheel. This is not going to end well.
