Zamboni driver arrested for driving drunk


APPLE VALLEY, Minn. (AP) — The driver of a Zamboni at a peewee hockey game in Apple Valley was arrested for operating the ice resurfacing machine while drunk.

Police were called to Hayes Arena Monday night after the Zamboni driver began weaving across the ice and smashing into the boards. Coach Bryan Dornstreich called 911 as the 10-minute ice resurfacing job went on for nearly a half hour.
