What started out as a medical call in the parking lot of the Walmart store in Mankato on Saturday turned into the arrest of a couple believed to have been drunk and behaving inappropriately.
Mankato Department of Public Safety Commander Dan Schisel said 32-year-olds Frank and Shantell Nei were sitting in their car when police arrived. “After the started to inquire and check on them medically they determined that they were just under the influence of something,” he explained, “And they were charged with a couple of different charges.”
Among the charges, there was a no-contact order in place following a previous domestic incident and Schisel said Shantell Nei was behind the wheel with the car running and was intoxicated. “They were also charged with indecent exposure, so they were engaged in a relationship that was not appropriate for the public,” he explained.
It happened at about 9:15 p.m. in the fully lighted parking lot.
The Nei’s were booked into the Blue Earth County Jail.
