An officer came upon a two-car crash in the early morning hours of Jan. 17 on Silver Lake Road at Interstate 694. One of the drivers, who’d rear-ended the other, said the other driver had pulled out in front of him, causing the crash. Police checked the other car and found a man passed out in the front passenger seat; the driver, a 20-year-old Brooklyn Center man, said he’d been trying to get home but didn’t remember the crash. Having smelled marijuana in the car, an office performed field sobriety tests and determined the man was too stoned to drive; his car was towed and he was issued a citation for fourth-degree DWI and failing to yield the right of way to oncoming traffic.

The officer initiated a traffic stop and found the driver to be a 33-year-old New Brighton woman who appeared drunk. She failed field sobriety tests and after attempting to run away from police saying she “lived right there,” she blew a blood alcohol concentration of .152. A small amount of marijuana was found in her car. She was arrested for third-degree DWI and later, for refusing a follow up breath test. She was booked at the Ramsey County Jail.

On Jan. 24, Centennial Lakes PD contacted New Brighton police to report the vehicle had been seen in the area of Interstate 35W and County Road I. Police pulled it over knowing it was stolen and arrested the driver. The car was towed and messages were left for the father and son saying it’d been found.
