LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (KMSP) - A semi-truck driver was arrested in central Minnesota after submitting a breath test with a blood-alcohol level seven times the legal limit, the State Patrol announced Monday.
"During the course of the traffic stop, the driver fell out of the truck because he was severely intoxicated," the State Patrol said.
According to authorities, a sergeant near Little Falls helped get the intoxicated commercial vehicle driver off the road last month following a driving complaint on Highway 10.
After falling out of the truck, the sergeant was able to get the driver back to his feet to perform field sobriety tests that resulted in a blood-alcohol level of 0.28. The name of the driver has not yet been released.
