Officer In Eddie Griffin's Case Gets DUIAccording to WCCO (complete with video), Dan Anderson, one of the police officers under investigation for possible mishandling of Eddie Griffin's infamous car accident, was arrested for a DUI early on Friday.
Brooklyn Center police arrested Anderson right on the police station property. He'd had a minor accident. He ran his car into a fence in the back of the parking lot.
Investigators said Anderson was drunk. They said he wasn't hurt and was cooperative and polite at the scene.
As to why a cop was driving drunk at a police station:
Brooklyn Center Police said it looks like just a coincidence. That somehow Anderson turned off the road at the police station and hit the fence. We don't know if he was heading there for some reason, or if in fact it was just where he happened to end up.
