The amount is $5,000 more than the prosecution asked for. They add the only way to keep Tegtmeier from drinking was to keep him in custody.
"I`ve found that people who are drinking are poor judges of whether they should be driving. At some point, friends and family need to say to people, `I`m taking your keys away. I`ll call you a taxi, but you`re not getting your own way home this time,`" said Cass County State`s Attorney Birch Burdick.
In North Dakota, a DUI is considered a misdemeanor, unless you commit five or more in seven years.
