With a last name like Brueske...

...I suppose you're bound to get a little carried away with the brewskis. (Yes, I know, that was bad...)
Man charged with fourth DWI after driving nearly 100 mph

A 40-year-old Burnsville man was arrested for his fourth DWI in nine years after police clocked him traveling 98 mph while driving his landlord’s minivan on Highway 13 near Louisiana Avenue on Nov. 9.
Brueske has three previous DWI convictions which occurred in July of 2000, February of 2008 and March of 2009, according to court records.

According to the criminal complaint:

An officer observed Brueske traveling 98 mph in a 55 mph zone on Highway 13 near Louisiana Avenue at about 11:56 p.m. on Nov. 9. The officer caught up to the vehicle Brueske was driving and observed him swerve across the highway and cross the centerline several times.

After activating the squad’s emergency lights, Brueske traveled about half a mile before stopping, the complaint stated.

When the officer approached the vehicle and asked for a license and proof of insurance, Brueske told the officer, “Take me to jail. I am drunk.” Brueske also stated he did not have a license because it had been canceled.
When the officer asked Brueske if he had been drinking, he replied, “Yes, way too much.” Brueske refused to take a field-sobriety test and further stated to the officer, “Just take me to jail and let’s get this over with. You and I both know that I’m drunk.”

A preliminary breath test resulted in a failed reading of .25, according to the complaint.

Brueske was then placed under arrest. After being taken to the holding cell at the Savage Police Department, Brueske vomited in the cell twice and was transported to St. Francis Regional Medical Center for treatment.

After being seen by medics for his illness, Brueske was cleared to be booked into the Scott County jail.

If convicted, Brueske faces a maximum of seven years in prison, a $14,000 fine or both for each of the first-degree DWI charges. He also faces a maximum of five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine for the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle charge.
In all seriousness, it's really sad but you also hope that this one wakes him up. And you've got to appreciate his honesty with the officer.

Seriously, best quote: "Just take me to jail and let’s get this over with. You and I both know that I’m drunk."

Too bad not everyone is so cooperative.

In my world a person's second DWI would send them to jail for a long time. How do people get away with multiple deewees? Sick.

Seriously, that's kind of freaky when you consider a guy is going 98 and crossing the center line drunk. I always kind of toss around the possibility of that happening at night when I'm driving and headlights are approaching me. I wish people like that would think just a little bit more about others. His quotes to the officer did crack me up though.
