Lake area highway patrol troopers have been a little busier than normal this week. They’ve made seven arrests since Sunday. The most recent came just after 12:30 this morning when 54-year old Gary Prewitt of Eldon was released with a summons for DWI-alcohol, speeding, no insurance, and other motor vehicle violations. Four of the arrests involved DWI. One involved drugs. In addition to those seven, there was an eighth arrest involving a lake area resident outside of the tri-county region. A 20-year old from Eldon was arrested for DWI in Cole County.
