At least he was honest.
When a Dakota County Sheriff’s deputy asked Aaron Lundebrek how much he’d been drinking, Lundebrek’s reply was, “too much.”
According to a complaint filed in the Dakota County Attorney’s office that “too much” caused Lundebrek, 37, of Red Wing, to swerve “all over the road” early on the morning of April 24, frightening several drivers and forcing one car off the road, causing “significant damage” to the car.
A sheriff’s deputy found Lundebrek in Hampton Township after he’d blown through a stop sign, crashed through a barbed wire fence and driven into a plowed field. According to the complaint, Lundebrek smelled strongly of alcohol. He failed a preliminary breath test.
Lundebrek faces four gross misdemeanor or misdemeanor charges. Three gross misdemeanor charges for criminal vehicular operation each carry a potential sentence of up to one year and fines of up to $3,000. A misdemeanor charge of driving while impaired carries a potential sentence of up to 90 days and fines of up to $1,000.
