New Brighton

Severe swerve
An officer stopped a driver on Long Lake Road Aug. 22 that he suspected was impaired after she committed a severe swerve. She just snuck under the legal limit with a .06 proof BAC: the license however, was another matter. The 46-year-old local's license had been cancelled-inimical to public safety. The vehicle she was swerving in belonged to a friend in Blaine. When that 45-year-old was asked if he knew his New Brighton friend had a cancelled license, he said he did. The woman was booked at the jail on a charge of gross-misdemeanor DAC-IPS. The man was mailed a citation for allowing an unlicensed driver to drive.

When a deputy observed a vehicle without a front plate pull into a gas station at Lexington Avenue near County Road E and begin to fill up Aug. 23, he stopped as well to run the rear plate, quickly learning that the driver had a suspended license.

The 26-year-old White Bear Lake man was booked at the jail.
