Hell's ice cream truck|
(AP) - WAUKESHA, Wis.-The driver of an ice cream truck was charged with drunken driving after a woman called police saying she saw a man throw a can of malt liquor onto her lawn.
Police stopped David A. Blundell, 43, in his ice cream truck a short time after the homeowner complained last Thursday, according to the criminal complaint. Blundell first denied drinking but then admitted that he had a beer for breakfast, the complaint said.
Blundell, who authorities said is also a registered sex offender, was charged Tuesday with repeat drunken driving. Tests showed his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the level considered evidence of intoxication, which in Wisconsin is .08 percent.
Blundell was previously convicted of drunken driving in 2001.
Rodney Jensen, whose Jensen Vending company in Milwaukee owns the ice cream truck, said he did not know Blundell was a registered sex offender. Blundell has been fired.
