The last thing the front office personnel of the Winnipeg Jets wanted this offseason was to wake up one day, open the paper and find Dustin Byfuglien’s mugshot on the front of the sports section.
Apparently, Byfuglien likes to enjoy his offseasons a little too much.
The Minnesota native was arrested on Lake Minnetonka and booked on suspicion of boating while intoxicated, authorities said on Thursday. Byfuglien, 26, was arrested at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday on Lower Lake South in Excelsior and refused to submit to a blood or urine test for alcohol consumption, according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office. Byfuglien was released a few hours after he was brought to jail with his charges still pending.
