The adult son of Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek has been charged with drunken driving in Maple Grove.
Ryan Stanek, 22, was arrested about 3:30 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Police were called to the 8100 block of Shenandoah Lane on a welfare check. The caller said there was a person slumped over in a vehicle parked on the street, according to a police report.
Officers arrested Stanek for “3rd Degree DWI refusal.”
“My son is an adult and he is accountable for his actions,” the sheriff said in a statement. “As parents, we are supportive of him during this difficult time.”
In May, Ryan Stanek was charged with damaging a tree and a horse trail at Lake Rebecca Park Reserve near Delano.
