Waukesha police officers will be keeping an extra eye out for drunken drivers and seatbelt violators during St. Patrick's Day weekend's special enforcement.
To combat drunken driving and increase safety belt use, the City of Waukesha Police Department will intensify its traffic safety enforcement during the St. Patrick’s Day weekend. The increased enforcement is part of a $65,000 grant that the City of Waukesha Police Department received from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Transportation Safety. “During the St. Patrick’s Day mobilization and throughout the year, we are striving to prevent motorists from killing and injuring themselves and others on our roadways," said Sgt.

Downtown Waukesha's entertainment district counts on large crowds for the holiday soaked in green beer.
St. Patrick's Day has special meaning for Donnie Crouse, whose his father passed away six years ago on the holiday. He'll have little chance for quiet reflection on the day, however, as he's also the owner of Donnie Boy's & Chubby's, one of the downtown Waukesha establishments expecting huge traffic on St. Patrick's Day. It is widely known across Waukesha that the Main Street bar scene is the place to be on St. Patrick's Day from 9 a.m. to close. The back parking lot for Donnie Boy's, as well as House of Guinness and Magellans, will be blocked off for the whole holiday in anticipation of the large crowds. For the bar owners on this busy holiday, the goal is to stand out from the crowd to offer bar hoppers an attraction they won't want to …

Gabriel Granados-Saucedo was recently recognized for his actions when he found a man hurting a woman following a night of St. Patrick's Day drinking.
Gabriel Granados-Saucedo was walking home from a late night at the bars after St. Patrick’s Day when he saw them near his house — a woman laying on her stomach with a man on top of her, holding onto her arms. "Help me," the woman called out. Granados-Saucedo pulled the man off the woman. The man angrily told him "this isn’t your house." "If you call the cops, I will kill your entire family," the man yelled at Grandos-Saucedo while pulling up his pants' zipper. Granados-Saucedo, of Waukesha, was sent a letter of commendation by Police Chief Russell Jack last week for his work in capturing a sexual assault suspect last March. Granados-Saucedo helped identify Raul Martinez Lopez as the man he pulled off of a woman being attacked in the 400 …
