James Henry Gottfried Kimmel, 46, address unknown, faces one count of felony-level DWI for driving under the influence with three or more qualified impaired driving violations within the last ten years. Additionally, Kimmel is charged with having an alcohol concentration of over .08 within two hours of operating a motor vehicle.

On Sept. 6, at approximately 8:02 p.m. a Nobles County Sheriff's Deputy responded to a motorcycle accident in Nobles County. Upon arrival, he observed a male, later identified as Kimmel, with several injuries to his head and limbs.

According to the criminal complaint, Kimmel smelled of alcohol, and the deputy was informed that prior to arrival, Kimmel had made statements to others on the scene that he needed to leave because he had been drinking.

Kimmel was transported to the Sanford Worthington Medical Center emergency department, where he was intubated and later airlifted to a hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Prior to transportation, a signed search warrant was obtained for Kimmel's blood and the sample was sent to the Bureau of Criminal apprehension. Analysis of Kimmel’s blood reportedly revealed an alcohol concentration of .218 %.
