Traffic crash and more lead to charges
ST. CROIX FALLS – A citizen report on the evening of Monday, Dec. 1, of a possibly intoxicated driver led to St. Croix Falls Police responding to the location, which was in their city, where they found the vehicle in question and observed the vehicle making a wide turn into a business, when the officer stopped the car.
The driver was identified as John Bainbridge, 26, Ashland, who reportedly smelled of intoxicants and had very slurred speech.
Bainbridge later failed a field sobriety test and registered a blood alcohol concentration of 0.19%, well over the legal limit to drive.
Bainbridge was charged with operating while intoxicated, second, and taken into custody. Charges were still pending at press time.
