Minnesota man pleads guilty to felony drunk driving after SUV rollover accident

MASON CITY – A Minnesota man who came to Mason City last March and proceeded to get drunk and roll his shiny black SUV with his child inside and hen hightail it to Buffalo Wild Wings is spending 30 days in jail and avoided a 5 year prison sentence.

Anthony Lynn Lathrop, age 41, of Chaska, Minnesota, was placed under arrest on the afternoon of March 27, 2014 for third offense operating under influence, child endangerment, open container of alcohol, and no driver’s license.

Cerro Gordo county deputies responded to the one-car accident at the 1500 block of Mallard Avenue, between the Avenue of the Saints and southwest Mason City at about 2:24 PM that day. According to sources at the scene, when the deputies and Mason City Fire Department responded to the accident, they were told that the Lathrop and the passenger of the black Chevy Tahoe – Lathrop’s seven-year-old daughter, Samantha – had left and taken a ride to Buffalo Wild Wings in Mason City. A deputy proceeded to go to Buffalo Wild Wings to bring them back to the accident scene. They were checked by medics and not injured.

Lathrop later entered a plea deal in the case. He pled guilty to felony third offense drunk driving and the child endangerment charge was dropped. He was ordered to jail for 30 days, and a five year prison sentence was suspended. He was also given five years of probation and assessed $5,120.25 in fines and court fees.

Lathrop awaits a January 5 jury trial on the open container of alcohol charge and the no valid driver’s license charge.
