DUI: Joel Magnuson crashes motorcycle near Tiny Town Road after having 1 beer

37-year-old Joel Lee Magnuson, a Slicks Bar and Grill employee, had a motorcycle accident near Tiny Town Road and Cainlo Drive in the early hours of April 15th. Upon arrival, officers observed him trying to pick up his damaged bike and approached him. Officers noticed Magnuson reeked of alcohol and had difficulty standing up. Magnuson told them he had one shot and one beer before driving toward his Cainlo Residence and crashing. He could not take sobriety tests because of a medical issue with his legs. Then, Magnuson was detained and read implied consent, where he refused to provide a blood sample. This prompted officers to obtain a search warrant for a blood draw. Per NCIC, Magnuson had two prior DUIs on May 2008 and January 2013. Magnuson was taken into custody for driving under the influence and an implied consent violation.
