February 15th 2010 City of New Holstein Wisconsin
An officer was dispatched to Hickory Lane for a report of people standing around a vehicle trying to flag down other passing cars. When the officer arrived on the scene, he found two older women inside the vehicle holding notes which they had been holding up asking for help. The women were able to yell through the closed windows of their vehicle that the battery on the car had died so the power windows and locks would not operate. The officer was able to communicate back that the women could manually lift up the door lock button, which they then did in order to exit the vehicle.
