The Minnesota Court of Appeals says fear of harm is not a defense against losing one’s driver’s license for drunken driving. The case involved a Monticello couple who got into a drunken argument at the Fish Lake Resort in Mora that turned physical back at their family cabin. After Jennifer Axelberg took refuge in her car, Jason Axelberg punched and cracked the windshield. Fearing for her safety, she drove back to the resort where a bystander called police. He was arrested on suspicion of domestic assault while she was arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired. The state revoked her license for a year.
