Ice cream truck driver charged with drunken driving

(Published Wednesday, June 15, 2005 09:50:14 AM CDT)


Associated Press

WAUKESHA, Wis. - The driver of an ice cream vending truck accused of throwing a can of malt liquor on the lawn of a New Berlin home while driving the vehicle has been charged with repeat drunken driving.

The charge was filed Tuesday in Waukesha County Circuit Court against David A. Blundell, 43, of Milwaukee, in an incident last Thursday.

The criminal complaint said homeowner Denell Heller called police when she saw a man toss an item, which turned out to be a liquor can, onto her lawn.

A police officer found the driver a short time later, the complaint said. It said the man first denied he had been drinking but, when asked a second time, admitted to drinking a beer for breakfast.

Separate tests to measure intoxication both showed his blood-alcohol concentration was more than twice the level considered evidence of intoxication, the complaint said.

Blundell was previously convicted of drunken driving in February 2001.

Authorities have also said that the driver was a registered sex offender. Rodney Jensen, whose Jensen Vending company in Milwaukee owns the ice cream truck, said he had not been aware of that status and has now fired him.

I don't know....drunk driving+ice cream truck+registered sex offender does not = funny to me....pathetic people we are surrounded by. And of course he'll get off with minimal repercussions, that's the way it works.

Yeah..uh...that's a riot.

The adjectives I'd choose are more like "scary" and "disturbing", but whatever.

When I titled this thread as funny, I wasn't saying funny as in "Lets all go out and get drunk and run over some kids with an ice cream truck!" I was saying funny in a sarcastic manner. I'm sorry that some of you took it the wrong way.

Is this a delivery (shipping) truck (like breyer's ships to sentry) or is it a "bells chiming, come and get your ice cream kiddies" truck?
