GOP Candidate For Minn. Supreme Court Gets Ticket While Awaiting DWI Trial


The GOP Minnesota Supreme Court candidate arrested in April 2013 on suspicion drunken driving and resisting arrest was ticketed Monday for violating the driving restrictions placed on her as she awaits trial for the incident.

The Minnesota Republican Party endorsed Michelle MacDonald’s bid for the state supreme court seat in June, and found out just days later the attorney was awaiting trial for an alleged drunken driving and resisting arrest incident.

MacDonald currently has a limited license and is only allowed to drive between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. She was given a citation Monday for violating the terms of her driving restrictions, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.
