Some Days It Doesn’t Pay To Wake Up

Drunk driver  Mpls. slams into a lightpole outside a Minneapolis police precinct:

The perilous scene took place just outside the department’s Fifth Precinct headquarters at Nicollet Avenue S. and W. 31st Street. A driver slammed into the light pole outside the precinct office at 3:45 a.m.

A second driver – perhaps gawking, perhaps too stewed to know better – happens on the scene:

Sgt. Dudgeon and another officer left their office to investigate the crash, but as Dudgeon circled around the car to see if it contained any passengers, a second driver veered over and hit her.

Sgt. Dudgeon had minor injuries, but was left in a state of high dud…no.¬† Too easy.

Both drivers are arrested for suspicion of drunk driving, and a grab bag of other charges.

The Twin Cities AFSCME office has not yet issued on a statement on whether the incidents constituted a threat to them.
