SUPERIOR, Wis. - Brett Finch is probably moving back home to Mississippi, where the only ice he wants to see is in a drink.

Finch spent much of Monday night in the drink and on ice chunks in the St. Louis River.


The construction worker from Iuka, Miss., said he drove his black Buick out on the ice near the 28th Street boat landing in Superior just because it seemed like a fun thing to do. It wasn’t fun for long.
