Mayor of Eagan Arrested for Drunken Driving
EAGAN (AP) -- The mayor of Eagan is accused of driving drunk and crashing into a snowbank with a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.
Mike Maguire was arrested near his home Jan. 11 after police responded to a report of an SUV stuck in a snowbank. A criminal complaint says a responding officer smelled alcohol and noticed Maguire had slow slurred speech and bloodshot and glassy eyes.
The complaint says Maguire was staggering and needed assistance walking. A breath test showed a blood alcohol contents of 0.19%. He was booked into Dakota County jail.
It's not clear if Maguire has hired an attorney.
