Ice joy riders face charges
Three college students took a joy ride on a floating ice chunk on the Chippewa River, prompting emergency crews to respond for a rescue operation.
Matt Turek, 18, and two friends, ages 19 and 21, purposely went floating down the Chippewa River early Friday morning. A campus police officer apparently saw the scene and reported it as an emergency.
According to news reports, about 20 emergency personnel responded to the call and pulled the students from the ice.
