APPLE VALLEY, Minn. (AP) - A Twin Cities man who allegedly drove a Zamboni at a peewee hockey game while drunk is now charged with DWI.
Thirty-four-year-old Joel Bruss of Apple Valley was charged this week with four counts of driving while impaired.
According to the complaint, Bruss had a blood-alcohol content of 0.32 percent - four times the legal limit for driving in Minnesota.
Parents at an Apple Valley ice arena called police on Jan. 30 to report that Bruss was driving the ice-resurfacing machine erratically.
According to the complaint, when police arrived at Hayes Ice Arena, Bruss had gotten the Zamboni stuck half-on and half-off the ice.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Bruss has been suspended from his part-time job.
He did not immediately return a phone call for comment Thursday.
