• At 5:41 p.m. police responded to a report of two intoxicated individuals near Fourth and Chatfield streets. On the way to the scene, officers spotted two male individuals at Fifth and Chatfield streets who matched the descriptions of the suspects. An officer made contact with Steven Everett Bale Sanders, 40, of Winona, while the second male walked away toward Mankato Avenue. The officer had to physically hold up Sanders to keep him from falling over. When asked his name, Sanders told the officer his name was Scot Wayne Sanders and also gave the officer a false date of birth. The officer checked the name in his data system and found that the photo for Scot Wayne Sanders did not match the individual who had given him the name. The officer then went over to the second male and asked him what Sanders’ real name was, and the second male provided him with Sanders’ real name. Sanders eventually admitted to using his brother’s name and was arrested and sent to the Winona County Jail and then to a detox facility. Sanders was referred to the Winona County Attorney for charges of providing false name and date of birth. He is on probation and supposed to abstain from alcohol.
