The Fourth of July holiday weekend is practically upon us, and with hot weather in the forecast, the State Water Patrol expects big crowds on the lakes and rivers this weekend. Sergeant Ralph Bledsoe says the biggest danger will be the number of drunk boaters out on the water. Last Fourth of July weekend, 50 people were arrested for boating-while-intoxicated. Bledsoe expects there will be even more arrests this year because the Water Patrol will have even more officers watching.
