RED WING, MN (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee County sheriff's captain is on desk duty, after being arrested for driving drunk in Minnesota.
Police in Red Wing said they stopped 41-year-old Catherine Trimboli at 2:30 a.m. last Sunday because her tail lights were off. Milwaukee sheriff's officials said Trimboli flashed her badge to the officer, and asked that she be let go as a "professional courtesy."
Her blood alcohol level was 0.14 on a breath test -- almost twice the legal limit of 0.08.
Red Wing Police released her after she was booked on her first OWI offense, and she faces a criminal misdemeanor charge in Minnesota.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said asking for a pass aggravated an already bad situation -- and she'll be dealt with appropriately if she's convicted.
