The saga of Dustin Byfuglien’s August 31 boating DWI on a Minnesota lake is nearly a month old and its still churning out little nuggets seemingly by the day.
Now a police report released Tuesday says Byfuglien’s breathalyzer count was .03, well under the legal limit of .08 in Minnesota, but they still suspected the burly blue liner of being impaired by drugs due to slurred speech and an inability to pass a field sobriety test. Byfuglien admitted to having 2 or 3 glasses of wine at dinner, which he and his party were traveling from at the time they were stopped by police. Noted in the police report was the presence of a brown stain on Byfuglien’s tongue. Byfuglien was stopped by police at a Lake Minnetonka check point because he did not have proper lights on his boat, according to a Winnipeg Free Press report.
