Wrestling fans welcomed with speed trap


DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Dozens of drivers -- many who were heading to the state wrestling tourniment -- are facing speeding tickets after a major speed enforcement operation on Highway 235 Wednesday.

Officers from five departments lined up on the Euclid ramp, and one by one pulled over speeders heading into the city.

Ten miles per hour over the limit got drivers a $129 ticket; no registration fines run more than $300.

While the officers say they were not trying to target people heading to the wrestling tournament, fans say the sight was intimidating.
