Besides a semi careening off an interstate bridge and an SUV crashing through the front doors of a local gym, Cedar Rapids’ celebration of all things Irish stayed pretty quiet on the crime front. Cedar Rapids police arrested only five people for drunken driving and nine people for public intoxication, all in the downtown area.

It was a Monday, though. Drinking too much Guiness or Bailey’s Irish Cream can make little lads and lassies too green in the face to face the next work day.
