The Minnesota State Patrol says a 27-year-old Proctor man has been charged after allegedly stealing an excavator in Duluth and taking it for a drunken joyride. 

Authorities say Dustin Lunde was arrested around 3:30 a.m. on March 9 near the M & H gas station, driving the piece of machinery on a Superior St. sidewalk.

Lt. Eric Roeske says Lunde's breathalyzer test showed that his blood alcohol content was allegedly more than twice the legal limit for driving, registering a .20.

Lunde is charged with theft of a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property, and second-degree DWI.
