Would-be Operator Arrested for Operating Crane Illegally

Bruce, Wis., August 2012—A woman was arrested for causing damage with a construction crane. Investigators say she went to a construction site one evening and told employees she wanted to work there. The employees say that after they’d sent her on her way, she returned, climbed onto a truck-mounted crane, and started pulling levers to operate the crane. She hit a truck with the boom, causing extensive damage. Police arrested her for endangering safety, drunk driving, and other charges. –
