Driving to New Mexico

The real story is in where the milk was going:

The driver of a milk-filled tanker headed from Wisconsin to New Mexico was arrested for drunken driving on the Beltline during rush hour Tuesday afternoon, Madison police said.

Harry C. Mapps, 55, of Dimmitt, Texas, was stopped near Fish Hatchery Road just before 5:15 p.m. after an officer observed him weaving, using "all three lanes," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

Mapps had a partially consumed bottle of vodka, a six-pack of beer that was missing four cans and a four-pack of malt liquor in his cab, DeSpain said.

Other rush-hour drivers stayed a distance back from the truck, he said.

Motorists had previously reported a milk truck that was driving erratically between Sun Prairie and Madison, DeSpain said.

Mapps told police he was working for a Missouri company.
