Elvis Island

A pontoon couldn’t quite bridge over troubled water, and likely gave its occupants a shake, rattle and roll as it crashed astride a small island on Prairie Lake, northwest of the Long Bridge in Chetek around 11 p.m. on Saturday, June 11. The pontoon was safely removed from the island on Sunday. All four occupants were uninjured in the accident, but needed help getting off the island. They surely will not forget such a night. The Chetek Police Department and Chetek Fire Department assisted. The driver of the pontoon was cited for operating a boat while intoxicated.
