Sheriff’s Captain James Schueller said deputies responded to the report of an overturned 2016 GMC Sierra in the median of Hwy. 14 at County Rd. 3 shortly after 2 a.m. He said deputies found the vehicle empty and began searching the area, fearing the driver had been either ejected or had wandered off after suffering an injury.

Fabian was evaluated at the scene then released by Byron First Responders. Fabian is awaiting arraignment and Schueller said he could face charges for DWI, driving without a Minnesota driver’s license and driving without insurance.
