Arby's without drive-thru board after weekend incident


WILLMAR -- An accused drunken driver has left the Willmar Arby's restaurant without its drive-thru menu board, just a few days before the annual Sonshine music festival begins.

A 32-year-old Willmar man allegedly hit the board with a vehicle at about 11:25 p.m. Saturday. He was arrested by Willmar police on a charge of fourth-degree driving under the influence.
