BRICELYN — A Wells man allegedly was drunk when he crashed his vehicle and threatened and kicked a sheriff's deputy.
Joshua Alan Pourrier, 27, was charged with felony threats, gross misdemeanor assaulting a police officer and gross misdemeanor DWI Monday in Faribault County District Court.
A Faribault County sheriff's deputy found Pourrier crashed in a ditch at County Road 2 and 560th Avenue southeast of Bricelyn early Sunday morning.
Pourrier refused to identify himself, swore at the deputy and kicked the deputy in the leg, according to a court complaint.
At the scene and at jail, Pourrier repeatedly used a slur and made threatening statements toward the deputy such as “I'm telling you to die,” according to the complaint.
Pourrier reportedly smelled of alcohol and refused to take any blood alcohol concentration tests. He has one prior DWI conviction.
