APPLE VALLEY, Minn. - Police were called to an ice arena Monday night after getting reports of a man operating a Zamboni who appeared to be intoxicated.
Apple Valley police say the 34-year-old man who was driving the Zamboni struggled to maneuver the Zamboni off the ice at Hayes Arena. The man was given a field sobriety test and arrested for driving while impaired.
Witnesses said the driver was swerving while clearing the ice and on several occasions hit the boards of the rink.
The driver, a part-time arena employee, was taken into custody and given a blood alcohol test.
Results from the blood alcohol test were not available and could take up to 30 days.
No charges have been filed. It is KARE 11 policy to not name suspects until they have been formally charged.
