SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) - The mayor of Sauk Rapids will spend some time in jail for drunken driving.
Mayor Brad Gunderson pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated during a court appearance Tuesday afternoon. He was arrested in February after he was involved in a crash near his home. The St. Cloud Times reports Gunderson will be on probation for six years. He also must refrain from drinking and pay for garbage cans and a street sign he hit when he drove his SUV off a street and into a yard.
KSTP-TV says the mayor was sentenced to 15 days in jail and ordered to pay a $900 fine. A complaint says Gunderson had a blood alcohol level that was more than three times the legal limit for driving.
The mayor began his first term Jan. 1. Gunderson has said he won't resign.
