A 23-year-old man was arrested for drunken driving early Friday morning after his vehicle got stuck in a snowbank.

The man, who is from the Oshkosh area, was driving on Lake Winnebago near Lakeshore Drive when his vehicle became stuck in a snowbank. A caller on shore reported the man to authorities, said Winnebago Sheriff’s Lt. Gordon Ledioyt.

The man was not injured, but he was arrested for his first drunken driving offense.

Deputies from the sheriff’s office made one other drunken driving arrest between Thursday at 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Friday, Ledioyt said.

The sheriff’s office also responded to a report of a car that fell into a crack on Lake Winnebago near Ceape Avenue, Ledioyt said.

The driver was not there, but Ledioyt said authorities do not believe they are in any danger and are trying to locate them. The vehicle was removed by a local wrecking company.
