Another Minnesota driver and passenger combo were cited at 9:09 p.m. that same evening in the 8000 block of 60th Street N. for the same violation.

The driver said she couldn’t renew her license due to COVID and that she had to retake the driving test.

Medics arrived to check him out before he went willingly to detox.
