A La Crosse Tribune report said 21-year-old Ellen "Ellie" Ahmann of Winona, Minn., had just left the downtown tavern where she was tending bar on New Year's Eve. Police reports obtained through an open-records request said her blood-alcohol level was 0.16 percent, or twice the legal limit.
The reports quote Ahmann's roommate as saying Ahmann and friends had "a couple" of drinks before she drove to work.
Surveillance video from the Cheap Shots bar shows Ahmann drinking three shots in about 30 minutes.
She left about 10 p.m. Video shows her car jumping a curb and plunging toward the river.
