Prosecutors say an off-duty Otter County Sheriff’s deputy was also at the VFW, and witnessed Bettcher drinking. He then called authorities.

Police pulled Bettcher over after they say he ignored a stop sign and drove 10 to 15 miles an hour on Highway 10 while swerving.

Bettcher told the officer he was “way over” the limit, and that he should take him to jail.
