A northwest Wisconsin police chief has pleaded guilty to driving drunk.  Amery chief Thomas Marson entered his plea yesterday in Polk County Circuit Court to a citation for first-time O-W-I.  A companion charge of driving with a prohibited blood-alcohol level was dropped.  Marson was fined 741-dollars, and he'll lose his driver's license for six months.  The chief is on paid administrative leave, after he was arrested last weekend.  Authorities said Marson drove his personal vehicle into a ditch late Saturday night about five miles south of Amery.  He had a blood alcohol level of point-156, almost twice the state's limit for intoxication.
