ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI)  Sauk Rapids Mayor Brad Gunderson will remain suspended from his job at Metro Bus for a minimum three years following his arrest for drunken driving.

That's according to Metro Bus Operations and Technology Director Tony Kellen, who spoke with KNSI News from Chicago today.

Gunderson was arrested February 19th in Sauk Rapids. His blood-alcohol content was .26, which is more than three times the legal limit for driving in Minnesota.

Gunderson has worked as a driver for Metro Bus.

Kellen says the suspension is without pay, and without benefits. The punishment is spelled out in the terms of a union contract that expires in July 2014.

Gunderson has resisted calls to resign as mayor. If he's convicted in this latest incident, it would be his third drunken driving conviction.
