Thu 8-2-2018

(Jackson, Mn.)-- A Jackson woman has been charged after a vehicle she was driving earlier this week crashed through a window of the Santee Crossing-Embers restaurant in Jackson.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says deputies were called to the scene around 3:30 pm Monday.

The driver of the vehicle, 41-year-old Jaimi Michelson, initially told authorities she mistakenly stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake.

A further investigation revealed Michelson had a blood alcohol concentration of more than twice the legal limit.

She was arrested and charged with two counts of driving while impaired.
