The Lino Lakes Police Department got quite the excuse from a woman who blew over four times the legal limit last Wednesday.

Officers responded to a three-vehicle crash on Lake Drive and Main Street around 5:15 p.m. Officers say one of the people involved in the accident was 33-year-old Elizabeth Lundberg. According to another party involved in the crash, Lundberg was traveling at a “pretty high speed” when she rear-ended someone.

Lundberg’s speech was slurred, her eyes were watery and bloodshot, and her breath had a strong odor of alcohol according to the criminal complaint.

She told officers, “I am upset over the outcome of the election and you should let me go home.”

Lino Lakes Police Department posted about the incident on their Facebook page,


Once Lundberg was transported to the Lino Lakes Police Department, she attempted to give a breath sample and lost her balance and grabbed the breath testing machine and broke it. She was then transferred to the Centennial Lakes Police Department where her alcohol content was .33, which is over four times the legal limit.
