Minnesota Man Faces 10th Drunken Driving Offense

He was arrested by the Wisconsin State Patrol

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Wisconsin State Patrol arrested a 47-year-old Minnesota man for drunken driving, which would be his 10th offense, if convicted.

The Star Tribune reports that a trooper stopped Lawrence LaPole, of Rosemount, around 10:07 p.m. Tuesday in Elk Mound, Wisconsin. He was charged with drunken driving, failure to install an ignition interlock device, operating a motor vehicle without a valid driver’s license, and following another vehicle too closely.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says LaPole was taken to Mayo Health in Menomonie for a blood draw then was booked into the Dunn County jail.

Court records show that LaPole has a long list of driving violations, including felony convictions for drunken driving, dating back to 1989.

Documents did not list an attorney for LaPole.
