Zamboni Driver Charged With Driving Drunk
The driver of an ice resurfacing Zamboni was charged with drunk driving after he was found to have a blood alcohol level of o.32 percent, four times over the legal limit in the state of Minnesota. Witnesses say they watched him swivel and swerve all over the ice and bounce off the walls. What normally would take 10 minutes to resurface the ice took about a half hour.
The incident happened prior to a pee wee hockey game in Apple Valley, Minnesota. When police arrived the driver was trying to free the Zamboni from an outer walkway wall after he crashed into it. Officers smelled alcohol on his breath and arrested him on suspicion of DWI. He has two prior convictions,
A 12-year old boy used a cell phone to capture video of the incident.
