The criminal complaint filed in Olmsted County Court Monday indicated the woman was pulled over on I-90 in Olmsted County after a State Trooper spotted her traveling 83 mph in a 70m mph zone. Traffic stop occurred around 9:45 p.m. on Friday. 

The charges say the driver, identified as 52-year-old Brandy Gommels, was showing signs of impairment and admitted to using alcohol. She was arrested after a preliminary breath test returned a result of .145, which over the legal limit of .08. 

A follow-up test at the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center about an hour after the traffic stop pegged her blood-alcohol concentration at .14. Court records indicate Gommels was convicted of impaired driving offenses in 2016 and 2020 in Winona County and in 2019 in Dodge County.
