Sauk Rapids mayor sentenced to jail time

SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. — The mayor of Sauk Rapids will spend some time in jail for drunken driving.

Mayor Brad Gunderson pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated during a court appearance Tuesday afternoon. He was arrested in February after he was involved in a crash near his home.

KSTP-TV says the mayor was sentenced to 15 days in jail and ordered to pay a $900 fine. A complaint says Gunderson had a blood alcohol level that was more than three times the legal limit for driving. The mayor began his first term Jan. 1. Gunderson has said he won't resign.
