A 32-year-old Mankato man is charged with drunk driving after a crash last week in the roundabout at South Victory Drive and Stadium Road.
The Mankato Police Department says an officer found Adam Mahowald at the scene, alongside a car that had two flat tires and gas leaking into the road.
The criminal complaint shows Mahowald admitted that he’d been drinking earlier in the evening but denied that he’d been in an accident and couldn’t explain the damage to his car.
The officer halted field sobriety tests after almost fell over several times, and Mahowald was taken to jail after a preliminary breath test showed he was over the legal limit. In a test at the jail, Mahowald blew a .17.
Mahowald has a prior conviction for DWI in 2013 in Le Sueur County.
