Court Proceedings

Brown County District Court

• Bryan L. Randolph, 46, 110 Central St. W., Springfield, was charged with gross misdemeanor endangerment of a child and two counts of gross misdemeanor 3rd degree DWI April 2.

According to court documents, Springfield Police were dispatched to the Dollar General Store, 10 E. Rock St. at 2:20 p.m. March 30 about an intoxicated person in the store with a young child. Dispatch further advised that the person just left in a silver minivan.

Police arrived at the store where the vehicle was parked in the parking lot, pulled next to it and saw a person later identified as Randolph walk out of store with a young child. Randolph and the child got into the van before police advised him of a complaint that he was intoxicated and people were concerned for a young child in the vehicle.

Police detected a heavy alcoholic odor in Randolph’s breath as he talked. Randolph admitted to drinking the previous night and earlier that day. Police asked for his driver’s license and Randolph said he could walk home and call his brother in Sanborn to pick him up. Randolph gave the officer his Minnesota Identification card and admitted he didn’t have a valid driver’s license. Police ran Randolph’s driving status and learned his license was revoked and his address was in Sanborn. Police saw the vehicle registration came back to a different person.

Randolph indicated impairment clues during a field sobriety test. A Preliminary Breath Test sample indicated a .214 breath alcohol concentration. Randolph was arrested and transported to the Brown County Jail. A DMT breath test showed a reported value in g/210L of 0.14 at 4:48 p.m.

Randolph’s bail was set at $12,000 without conditions April 2. He had no bail for conditional release. Alcohol monitoring was a release condition.
