A Mankato man is facing two counts of drunk driving and one of having open booze in the car after police say he passed out in his car in the Dominos Pizza parking lot on Halloween night.
The responding officer found 48-year-old Esteban Alverado sitting in his running car outside the pizza shop, with the driver’s side door open, the headlights on, and loud music blaring.
The criminal complaint shows it took several attempts to wake him up and Alverado failed field sobriety tests. Investigators say he blew a .13 on a portable breath test but that increased to .17 on a standard test at the jail.
The officer also found two open beer cans in Alverado’s car.
