Former Senate Staff Member Gets DWI

KARE reported that a former Minnesota senate staff member, Michael Brodkorb,  was charged with DWI after a single vehicle crash in the east metro that left him hospitalized. Police officials determined that Brodkorb’s blood alcohol level had been .10 the night of the accident. Investigators said Brodkorb ran off I-35E in Mendota Heights and struck the wall of a bridge before careening across the northbound lanes and into the median wall.

Brodkorb received serious injuries and was sent to Regions Hospital. He received charges for DWI, negligent driving, and driving without a seatbelt. The first three counts are misdemeanors punishable by $1,000 fine and/or 90 days in the county jail. The no seat belt charge is a petty misdemeanor subject to a $300.00 fine. It was noted that this was not Brodkorb’s first time in dealing with media attention. He had made headlines after he sued the Minnesota State Senate for dismissing him in the wake of a highly publicized affair with then-Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch.
