BLOOMINGTON — A man with three previous convictions for driving while intoxicated has been arrested again, this time with a young child on his lap while plowing snow with a front-end loader in Bloomington.

A witness told police the man entered an auto parts store about 11 p.m. last Friday and appeared intoxicated. Police say the 31-year-old Eagan man then got into the front-end loader, put the 5-year-old child on his lap and plowed a parking lot outside World Market.

The man was arrested after police were called. KSTP-TV reports the father of the child picked up the youngster.
