Court documents say a Lake Crystal man with a revoked license had alcohol and meth in his system when he crashed an RV in a roundabout back in May.
38-year-old Mitchell Lee Schultz, was charged in Blue Earth County Court with three counts of felony DWI, felony drug possession, and gross misdemeanor driving after cancellation.
Police say in the report that Schultz drove an RV over a roundabout near Highway 22 and crashed into a County Road 90 ditch before fleeing the scene on foot.
A preliminary breath test put Schultz’s blood-alcohol level at .14, according to the criminal complaint. Police say Schultz then handed over a “kit” of two pipes and baggies that were later tested and confirmed positive for meth.
The report says Schultz told police there was a second person in the RV that had been driving and ran away from the scene. The report goes on to say that witnesses denied seeing anyone else exit the vehicle.
A blood draw later in the morning detected alcohol and meth in Schultz’s system.
