Minnesota State Patrol, Twitter

ST. CLOUD — It’s going to take more than the “Luck of the Irish” if you are caught drinking and driving this weekend.

Extra law enforcement will be on DWI patrol starting today (Friday) for St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

Minnesota State Patrol Sgt. Jesse Grabow says because the holiday falls on a Monday, it may lead to weekend long celebrations.

Grabow says if you plan to celebrate the holiday — plan ahead.
