Two people were arrested for drunken driving in Dodge County, because one of them couldn't pay for the gas he pumped.

Employees at a station in Reeseville called authorities Tuesday night after a Watertown man filled his tank but couldn't pay.

The 31-year-old was taken into custody on suspicion of his third OWI offense.

He could have been released to a responsible person but authorities said that person was drinking.

And while driving to the jail, the 35-year-old Waterloo woman crashed her vehicle into a utility pole while reportedly sending a text message.

She was taken to a Columbus hospital for treatment of minor injuries, and was cited for her first OWI.

By the way, a tow-truck driver got stuck while trying to remove the woman's car from a ditch - and a second towing company had to be called in.
