    It’s too bad this wasn’t a single fatality accident instead of the quadruple fatality accident he’ll be in this spring.

      Good catch!!!!

    2. GetALife says:

      It stated hwy 169 near brainerd, not in the town of brainerd. Brainerds mailing address is quite vast, when you turn left at holiday in Garrison it quickly becomes brainerd. But hey you made a very important contribution to this thread you’re very important in this world.

    How did he blow .33 if he was seriously injured and his BAC was taken by medical staff? I thought they did blood tests at the hospital and breathalyzers were administered by law enforcement? Just curious.

      Headline was prob written by someone other than the reporter. The story says he tested at .33, not blew.

    How in the world is this guy even walking around, much less driving, after 11 DWI arrests?? His butt should be behind bars for a loooooooooooooooooooong time!

    What is it gonna take? Him to take out innocent people, before they lock him up?If/when he recovers he should be out behind bars, until he decides to clean his life up!

    1. kate says:

      Would be interesting to know when the previous ocnvictions were – before or after the felony law was passed.

    so glad you know so much about the area, maybe you should work for the messenger…and since you know so much, you would know that there is so much crime here in the Mille Lacs area that it’s higher that most every where in the state. Just read YOUR messenger, it’s about as disgusting as you are

    “Police say he was seriously injured in the crash and was transported to North Memorial”. Are there no other hospitals between highway 169 near Brainerd and Robbinsdale? Please we have nuff drunks down here to clean up after.
