According to a police report, on 03/12/18 around 0240 hours, MNPD responded to the intersection of Woodland St / S 5th St for a traffic crash involving a gray Hyundai and a utility pole, called in by a passerby.

Police approached the vehicle and observed Jon Robb in the driver’s seat of the vehicle. The keys were in the ignition and the vehicle was running. Police made contact with the defendant, who stated he was downtown earlier this evening. Police asked if he was the individual involved in the traffic crash at the intersection of Woodland St / S 5th St, to which the defendant stated he was involved. The damage to the vehicle was consistent with the traffic crash police were dispatched on.
The defendant exited the vehicle, was unsteady on his feet, had a strong odor of alcohol emanating from his breath, and had bloodshot eyes.
