WORTHINGTON — A Worthington man was charged with felony DWI earlier this month, following a traffic stop by a Worthington police officer.

The ruling does not find theSioux Falls man mentally ill and dangerous, which would have resulted in placement in the Minnesota Security Hospital in St. Peter. Vossen was earlier found incompetent to stand trial on a murder charge in the 1974 homicide of Mabel Herman.
"It's difficult to think of a way this could have been worse,” said Deputy County Attorney Braeden Hoefert on the circumstance of the case.

According to the criminal complaint, on Nov. 4, Pavouth Senephimmachack, 49, was observed driving without a seatbelt and drifting over the roadway's center line. A Worthington police officer initiated a traffic stop after Senephimmachack pulled to the side of the road without signaling.

Senephimmachack was identified by his Oklahoma identification card while speaking with the officer. During this time, he reportedly said he did not have a valid driver’s license and knew it was a bad idea to be driving. A review of Senephimmachack’s record showed his driving status was suspended in Oklahoma.

The officer observed Senephimmachack have muscle tremors and facial twitching. According to the complaint, Senephimmachack told the officer he had ingested methamphetamine three days prior.

After struggling to pass field sobriety tests, Senephimmachack was placed under arrest. He was transported to the Nobles County jail, where he submitted a urine sample for BCA testing.


A methamphetamine pipe was reportedly located in Senephimmachack’s vehicle during the subsequent inventory of the car and tested field positive for methamphetamine.

Further review of Senephimmachack’s record reportedly showed two prior felony DWI convictions in South Dakota, within the last 10 years.

If convicted, Senephimmachack faces a maximum sentence of seven years imprisonment, a $14,000 fine, or both. He was granted conditional release and is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on Monday.
