LA CROSSE CO., WI -

Even though the amount of arrests were almost the same as last year during the first weekend of Oktoberfest, the La Crosse Co. Jail reached capacity.

A La Crosse County sergeant says 72 people were arrested and jailed from Friday to Sunday.

By 6:00 a.m. Sunday, the jail was overcapacity, meaning some inmates had to sleep on the floor.

The sergeant expects the jail to be back under capacity sometime Tuesday.
