Sheriff deputies, on Sept. 24, arrested a person for criminal vehicular operation following a traffic incident in New York Mills.

A driver was westbound on Gilman Street and struck a parked car, in turn pushing the car into another parked car. The vehicle, at close to 4:45 a.m., then ran over the curb and came to a stop.

A passenger was extricated by first responders from New York Mills. The individual was taken to the hospital in Wadena.

The driver admitted to drinking and was arrested. The defendant was taken to the detention center in Fergus Falls and was later scheduled to appear in county court.
