Times are tough for county governments, but Dodge County Sheriff Todd Nehls wasn’t afraid to “spice things up” when referring to an accident on Highway 151 near Columbus Thursday morning.
Icy roads caused a semi carrying a hot cargo to roll over in the median. The 30,000 pounds of jalapeño peppers the truck was carrying needed to be cleaned up. Nehls said if the towing company doesn’t have enough labor for the clean-up, he’d offer inmates do the work for a “set fee.”
“We could serve jalapenos for many years in our jail.”
