Statewide media report that state legislator Matt Grossell was cited for DWI over a week ago.
Grossell, who represents Bemidji and the rest of House District 2A, is facing three misdemeanor counts of DWI after blowing nearly twice the legal limit at a blood alcohol concentration of 0.15.
Grossell was reportedly stopped for speeding in Clearwater County near Clearbrook around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11.
The four-term Republican lawmaker has had a prior alcohol-related run-in with the law in 2019, which involved a commotion in a hotel lobby and ultimate transport to a hospital.
Grossell went through a court diversion program and was not convicted of trespass and disorderly conduct.
Grossell, a retired Clearwater County Sheriff’s deputy and former Blackduck Police Chief, is scheduled to be arraigned for the DWI later this spring.
