Man accused of driving tractor while drunk north of Chatfield

Posted: Updated:
ELMIRA TOWNSHIP, Minn. (KTTC) -- A man was arrested Sunday night after allegedly driving drunk on his tractor.

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office responded about 8:40 p.m. to 6900 County Road 136 Southeast, which is north of Chatfield. According to a sheriff's office report, a man was on his tractor doing fieldwork when another man on a tractor started circling him, blocking the area.

Capt. Scott Behrens said deputies arrived and saw the tractor that reportedly circled the man earlier leave the scene. The tractor continued to drive away and one of the deputies chased the tractor on foot through the field. The driver of the tractor, Jonathan Peter Schroeder, was arrested and is facing charges of third-degree DWI, fleeing police in a motor vehicle and disorderly conduct.
