A man with six prior DWI convictions is facing a seventh charge after he rolled his pickup into a ditch in rural Faribault County.


A passerby reported a crash on County Road 4, south of Blue Earth, on Friday night.  A Deputy allegedly found Christopher Dean Olson, 29, of Blue Earth, passed out behind the wheel of a rolled over pickup in the ditch.

Olson was charged this week in Faribault County District Court with felony DWI and gross misdemeanor driving without a license.


He has six prior DWI convictions and an underage drinking and driving conviction and his driver’s license had been revoked.
