TOWN OF BUFFALO, Wis. (WXOW) - A Le Roy, Minn. man is arrested for driving impaired while transporting a group of Amish to Iowa.
On June 21, shortly after midnight, the Buffalo County Sheriff's Department said one of their deputies stopped a passenger van at the intersection of STH 35 and Silver St. in the Town of Buffalo, for not having a functioning headlight.
The Sheriff's department said the driver, Trenton Anderson, 36, was driving 16 people from the Amish community to Cresco, Iowa. Officers said Anderson appeared to be impaired so they brought in a K9 unit to help investigate. During the investigation, the Sheriff's department said they found a baggy of meth and three meth pipes in Anderson's back pack. Officers said Anderson admitted he'd smoked meth before driving the group to Iowa.
Anderson was arrested and taken to the Buffalo County jail. He faces charges for possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating with a restricted controlled substance and operating without a valid drivers license.
