OWI Arrests Increase in Culver

The start of the summer vacation season in Culver has led to a few drunk driving arrests during the last two weeks.

Culver Police Chief Wayne Bean told the town council Tuesday night that in the past 10 days, six operating while intoxicated (OWI) arrests were executed by the Culver Police Department.

Three of those drunk driving incidents involved drivers operating a golf cart, according to Chief Bean.

Chief Bean said it is against the law to operate a golf cart in the Town of Culver under the influence of alcohol or any illegal substance. The operator must also have a valid Driver’s License to legally drive a golf cart in town. He said officers can and will arrest impaired individuals operating a golf cart.

There are 325 registered golf carts in Culver.
