Man arrested, not for having sex in car, but for response to cops

WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. — A White Bear Lake man caught having sex inside a vehicle on the side of the road faces criminal charges after making a lewd comment to law enforcement and lunging and spitting at an officer, according to the criminal complaint.

Alan Luces Krueger, 27, was charged Tuesday in Ramsey County District Court with one count of fourth-degree assault of a police officer and another of refusing to take a chemical test for the incident, according to the criminal complaint filed against him.

A nurse on her way home from work about 2:20 a.m. Monday noticed a vehicle facing the wrong way in a ditch on Otter Lake Road near Brandlwood Road in White Bear Township, charges said.

Law enforcement officers arrived and found Krueger in the driver’s seat with a woman alongside him in the passenger’s seat. The woman reportedly reeked of alcohol and had vomit on her leg. Deputies arranged for a relative to take her home.

Krueger was reportedly slurring and had trouble keeping his balance when a deputy instructed him to step out of his vehicle. When told to place his lips around a straw and “blow hard” so officers could give him preliminary breath test, Krueger responded with a lewd statement, according to the report.

He proceeded to scream, threaten and swear at officers during his subsequent arrest. He also lunged and spit at a deputy, according to charges.

Krueger was convicted previously of driving while under the influence, driving after revocation, and failing to stop after causing an accident that led to property damage.
