Continued: Driver who drove into St. Paul bar was passenger in fatal Dinkytown hit and run

Since 2001, Damman has committed at least 10 traffic violations in Minnesota; twice he was convicted of drunken driving, according to court records. He was discharged from probation March 28 for a 2012 third-degree DWI conviction where his two preliminary breath tests registered 0.101 and 0.096.

In 2009, a warrant was issued for his arrest for failing to provide documentation to his probation officer that he had completed or enrolled in “Driving With Care Level II/Therapy” for a 2008 DWI conviction.

Meanwhile, Matt Lokowich, who opened the Bulldog about 11 years ago, said Friday that the customers hurt in the crash “were sitting at the table right next to the front window. It could have been a lot worse. We’re very fortunate.”

Lokowich arrived at the bar about an hour after the crash and said he was told “it sounded like a bomb going off.”

The Bulldog reopened for business at 11 a.m. Friday.
