The first official weekend of summer begins with the water patrol division of the highway patrol reporting two arrests Friday night for alleged drunken boating.
The first, shortly after 6:30, resulted in a 30-year-old Shorewood, Illinois, man being slapped with a pending BWI charge and failure to display boat registration decals.
The second arrest, just after 9:00, had a 25-year-old man from Linn Creek hit with a BWI charge along with operating a vessel with no navigational lights.
Both were given summonses to appear and released without a trip, first, to the county jails.
