• Kameron C. Iverson, 22, 514 Minnesota St. N., New Ulm, was charged Sept. 7 with a gross misdemeanor charge for not carrying proof of insurance when operating vehicle with priors, a misdemeanor count of driving after cancellation and a petty misdemeanor count of vehicle registration/permit/plates required.
According to court documents, Sleepy Eye Police were on duty in the Sleepy Eye Event Center parking lot at 3 p.m., April 20 when they noticed a Suburban traveling into town on Highway 14 from the east. Another officer said a blue Suburban was parked on 1st Ave. S, just south of Main Street that had license plates belonging to a Ford Escort, and that the Suburban’s license plate expired in March 2017.
Police stopped the Suburban, ran the plates and found they came back to a 1993 Ford Escort registered to a Kyle S. from New Ulm. Police identified the driver as Iverson and asked him why he put the plates on the Suburban. Iverson said he wanted to move another vehicle parked behind an apartment building so he used the plates form the Escort because it didn’t have expired plates.
Police noticed a slight alcoholic odor coming from Iverson and learned his driver’s license was in a revoked status from a previous DWI. Iverson passed certain field sobriety tests. The vehicle was towed away by Westside Garage.
Iverson was summoned to appear in court at 8:30 a.m., Oct. 2.
