Man who got stuck in mud guilty of drunk driving

A drunk driver who got caught when he unexpectedly went mud bogging and got stuck has been fined and banned from driving.

“This story reminds me of a book I used to read to my kids about being stuck in the muck,” Judge Shauna Hewitt-Michta remarked in Brandon provincial court.

“I think you’re going to find that this conviction is going to slow you down for a while, and make things more complicated for the next year or more.”

Crown attorney Grant Hughes said that early in the morning of June 15, police driving on Highway 2, west of Souris, saw a truck drift onto the shoulder of the road.

As police followed, the truck wandered onto the shoulder again and then back onto the road.

It then drifted off the asphalt one last time, and went several hundred feet off-road and got stuck in the mud.

The driver, Braden Carlisle, got out of the truck, told the officer he was sorry and remarked that he’d almost made it home.

At the police detachment, breath tests determined that he had a blood-alcohol level far above the legal limit.

Carlisle, 25, pleaded guilty in court on Monday where he was fined $1,200 and banned from driving for a year.
