MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say they issued nearly 50 citations during the World Championship Snowmobile Derby last weekend in Eagle River.

The state Department of Natural Resources says a snowmobile enforcement team and wardens issued 46 citations and 161 warnings.

DNR Snowmobile Safety Administrator Gary Eddy says infractions ranged from registration violations to exceeding the nighttime 55 mph speed limit. Six people were arrested for operating while intoxicated, two of them after fleeing.
