Prosecutors say a Lakeville man who pulled up to a Taco Bell early in the morning Friday, May 3, went looking for love in all the wrong places.
Nathan A. Halverson, 26, is accused of making drunken advances toward the female employee trying to serve him at the drive-through window -- then waiting for her in the parking lot and flashing his lights until police showed up.
Halverson is charged with stalking and multiple counts of driving while impaired, all misdemeanors or gross misdemeanors. He remained in jail in Dakota County on Monday, May 6, with bail set at $12,000.
According to the criminal complaint:
Halverson pulled up to the drive-through window of the Taco Bell on 150th Street West in Apple Valley shortly after 2 a.m. Friday.
He didn't order food at the speaker, but instead started making advances toward the employee at the window.
Apple Valley police say the employee didn't know him.
He asked her for her phone number and "said he wanted her to come home with him after she got off work," according to the complaint.
The employee told him he needed to leave. He said he was going to wait for her in the parking lot.
Halverson then parked next to the front door and "began flashing his high beams into the business," the complaint said.
At that point, the employee asked her manager to call the police.
When officers arrived, they found Halverson still in his car in front of the restaurant, "sitting reclined in the driver's seat," the
complaint said.
His speech was slurred, his eyes were bloodshot and he failed field sobriety tests before recording a blood- alcohol concentration of 0.15, according to the complaint.
Halverson has two previous drunken-driving convictions in Minnesota from 2010 and 2011. His other convictions include misdemeanor domestic assault, misdemeanor criminal sexual conduct and felony terroristic threats.
His next court date is set for May 23.

We need to be taking cars away from drunk drivers -seizing them, not just impounding. It wouldn't stop this guy from being a drunken azz, but at least it would limit his pool of potential victims.
I am glad that in this case, he was drunk and stupid enough to sit right outside the place and be obvious, rather than actually following her home. This story could have had a much worse outcome.
