Rangers working on the Illinois River arrested a resort bus driver after passengers said she was doing shots while driving them to the river Saturday.

Tammy Jones, 53, is accused of driving while intoxicated. 

Rangers are working hard to cut down on problems along the river, in fact, they're even going undercover. Osage SkyNews Six HD headed to the Illinois River to learn more about how the program works.

Scenic River Rangers are wearing their swimsuits and floating the river to blend in with everyone else.  They're looking for everything from underage drinking to children without life jackets. 

Rangers say the biggest problem they're seeing is people tying rafts together and having glass bottles on the river.
