    Sad thing is if this happened to someone else this officer probably would have found a way to ticket them. Yes most drivers in southeast WI and throughout the state have sustained damage to their vehicles or have also probably gotten injuries from these sinkholes aka potholes. Only the unfortunate officer who got a small scratch on her head who (rumor has it) also wasn’t wearing her seatbelt makes the news. Find some real news to report on.
