A Washington police officer was injured over the weekend during an attempt to keep the city streets safe. A sobriety checkpoint was held Friday night at the intersection of Highway 47 and 1st Street. 384 vehicles were checked on northbound Highway 47 from 3rd Street to 1st Street. During the 4 hour effort three people were taken into custody, 2 for license violations and one for possession of marijuana, but one eluded authorities and the Washington Police need your help to find the suspect. As police approached a vehicle the driver sped off in an attempt to evade the checkpoint and ran over the foot of Police Officer Eric Saavedra. The suspect was last seen near 8th and Roosevelt Streets in a gold vehicle with damage to the driver’s side. He was a white male with a beard and blond hair. Officer Saavedra did not go to the hospital and is back at work today. Anyone with information on the suspect or the vehicle is advised to contact the Washington Police Department at 636-390-1057

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball.
