Ghost Hunting

Tackett also warns that you shouldn’t be investigation any alleged haunted houses without permission. He says that it is trespassing if you go inside a building without permission.   If you have to break something to get inside, it is damage to property and you could be charged with theft if you take something.



Halloween DUI


(WRN) Over the years Halloween has grown from a holiday for kids to one with lots of adult participation, which means adult celebrations. Dave Pabst with the state Department of Transportation says getting behind the wheel after drinking is a scary thing to do. Half the fatal Halloween night crashes in Wisconsin involve drinking and driving. And with kids trick or treating and step up law enforcment efforts, there's really no reaosn to make the mistake. There's even an app for designated drivers. The DOT's Zero In Wisconsin program's Drive Sober mobile app can help designate a sober driver or find a safe ride home on Halloween.
