Michael Brodkorb had .10 BAL when he seriously injured himself in one-car wreck [UPDATE]
Insult to injury: Out of the hospital, Brodkorb might face a drunk driving charge.
-- Original post from morning of February 8; update at bottom --
Up until 2005, Michael Brodkorb wouldn't have been doing anything illegal by driving around with a .10 blood-alcohol level in Minnesota. But now, he could face a drunken driving charge in connection with the one-car accident that left him in critical condition last month.
Yesterday, the State Patrol announced that Brodkorb's BAL was just over the legal limit. Whether a criminal charge is forthcoming is now up to the Lilydale City Attorney.
Brodkorb, 39, spent a few days in the hospital following the January 23 crash, but he's out now and tweeting again:
I owe a big thank you to my family & friends for their support over the last 11 days. #embracelife-- Michael Brodkorb (@mbrodkorb) February 4, 2013
Then, yesterday, he retweeted this:
"I'd really love to hear more about Michael Brodkorb." - Nobody-- jake nyberg (@jakenyberg) February 7, 2013
Makes sense. After all, if you were facing a drunk driving charge, you wouldn't want people talking about it either, right?
:::: UPDATE ::::
Michael Brodkorb officially faces charges in connection with last month's wreck.
