Woodbury Man Faces 5th DWI Charge
Jon Timothy Almquist, 38, was arrested March 8; police tracked him from a gas station car wash.
A Woodbury man faces up to seven years in prison and a $14,000 fine on a DWI charge, his fifth since 2002.
Jon Timothy Almquist, 38, was arrested during the early morning hours of March 8 and later registered a .19 in an alcohol-concentration sample.
According to the criminal complaint:
Employees at SuperAmerica noticed that a man, later identified as Almquist, was having trouble pumping gas, slurred his speech at the register and wasn’t walking in a straight line.
An officer was dispatched to the Woodlane Drive gas station and learned the man was in a large SUV that was in the car wash.
The driver left the car wash and later failed to signal a turn at Guider Drive. He was pulled over and showed signs of intoxication.
Almquist registered a .171 on a preliminary breath test, but it went up to .19 on a later test at the Woodbury Public Safety Department.
A check of state criminal records shows that Almquist was charged for DWI:
- in Dakota County in 2002;
- in Hennepin County in 2004;
- in Dakota County in 2005; and
- in Dakota County in 2007.
He also been previously charged with disorderly conduct and driving after revocation.
