Three Rochester-Area DUI Arrests Made During Storm
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Roads in the Rochester area may have been in poor shape Tuesday but that didn’t stop three local men from getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol. And this wasn’t the first time for one of the men.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office says the men ended up being arrested on suspicion of DUI.
One of the arrests took place around 10:30 Tuesday night in Oronoco after a 31-year-old man gave a deputy a breath test that showed he had a blood/alcohol concentration of .19.
A 46-year-old Stewartville man was arrested after crashing into another car and a fire hydrant around 6:30 p.m. near his home. A breath test showed he had a blood/alcohol level of .20.
The third arrest happened around 4 p.m. when a car driven by 47-year-old Bradley McFarlin crashed into a ditch along Highway 63 near Stewartville. This was the Rochester man’s 8th DUI-related arrest.
Court records show his first DUI arrest was in 1989. His most recent conviction was in 2011 when he was given a 5 year prison sentence.
