Beloit police say they, and the fire department, rescued a woman from the Rock River shortly after Midnight Thursday.


Authorities say the 26-year-old Minnesota woman was visiting her mother, had been drinking, and apparently had a bit of a disagreement before taking the swim. Police say they used rescue rings to pull her from the water near the Portland Avenue Bridge.


She was placed in protective custody.
