SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (KNSI) Trouble could be looming for the new mayor of Sauk Rapids.

Brad Gunderson was arrested Sunday afternoon for investigation of DWI after he crashed a vehicle at Ninth Avenue and 18th Street North in Sauk Rapids.

Gunderson ran into two trash cans and a crosswalk sign. He was not injured.

He failed a breath test and submitted a urine sample to determine his blood-alcohol level.

Gunderson was not booked into jail. He was taken to his home and dropped off.

Gunderson turned 48 years old last month. He just took the oath of office in January as Sauk Rapids' new mayor after previously serving on the city council.

KSTP Television says Gunderson has two prior DWI's on his record--in Anoka in 1985 and in Stearns County in 1991.
