Minnesota Man Tries Driving At Night Without Lights On, Gets Arrested For DWI

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

A Minnesota driver led State Police on a short chase after being spotted without his lights on.

Officials say at around 2:15 Saturday morning, William VanVorst, 41, was travelling west on Route 5 through Vernon when troopers began to follow him.

He allegedly sped up to about 70 m.p.h. between Vernon and Sherrill while weaving in and out of the eastbound lane.

He then tried to hide his vehicle behind a furniture store, where he was arrested and an open liquor bottle was found. He was later taken to the State Police Barracks in Oneida, where a breath test determined VanVorst had a BAC of .17%. It was also determined that his license had previously been revoked in New York because of a DWI related charge.

VanVorst is charged with DWI, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation, Driving with a BAC of .08% or greater, speeding, consuming alcohol, failure to keep right and lighting violations.

He was sent to the Oneida County Jail in lieu of bail.
