•At 11:27 p.m. police were called to the 400 block of East Eighth Street on a report that a driver had struck a parked vehicle and not stopped. Police found the alleged striking vehicle parked near a bar at Eighth and Hamilton streets and noticed a man leaving the bar and getting into a cab. When police asked the man his name, he allegedly told them the name of another man who the officers were familiar with. When confronted about the misinformation, the man admitted he was Nicholas Jacob Pederson, 27, of Winona, and that the damaged vehicle was his. Police believed he was intoxicated, and Pederson claimed that he had had nine drinks while inside the bar, although the bartender said he’d consumed one. He was cited for driving while intoxicated, failure to report a property damage accident, giving a false name to police and no proof of insurance. Police said his blood alcohol content was measured at .11 percent. Pederson said he didn’t want to say anything to police to incriminate himself.
