Milwaukee County sheriff's captain arrested for DWI in Red Wing

RED WING - A Milwaukee County sheriff's captain is on desk duty, after being arrested for driving drunk in Minnesota.  Police in Red Wing stopped 41-year-old Catherine Trimboli early Sunday morning because her tail lights were off. 

Milwaukee sheriff's officials say Trimboli flashed her badge to the officer, and asked that she be let go as a "professional courtesy."  Her blood alcohol level was point-14 on a breath test -- almost twice the legal limit of point-zero-eight. 

Red Wing Police released her after she was booked on her first DWI offense, and she faces a criminal misdemeanor charge in Minnesota.  Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says asking for a pass -- aggravated an already-bad situation -- and she'll be dealt with appropriately if convicted.
