FOLEY — The mayor of Sauk Rapids has been formally charged with DWI stemming from a crash and failed breath test last month.

The Benton County Attorney’s Office has charged 48-year-old Brad Gunderson with two counts of third degree driving while impaired.

Gunderson is accused of driving drunk and crashing his SUV into some trash cans and a street sign.

The Minnesota State Patrol says a urine test indicated Gunderson’s blood alcohol level was 0.26. A State Trooper took Gunderson to the Benton County Jail, but was he not booked there because of his high intoxication level. The trooper then brought Gunderson to his home and released him to a sober family member.

Gunderson is a Metro Bus driver is on Administrative Leave.  If convicted of DWI, he’ll be prohibited from working at Metro Bus for at least three years.

Gunderson will be arraigned on the charges April 9th.
