(Mankato, MN)  —  A Mankato man accused of causing a deadly ATV crash is now accused of being drunk at the time.  A criminal complaint accuses Joshua Wieland of having a blood-alcohol level over four-times the legal limit when he lost control of his ATV and crashed in South Bend Township last month.  The crash killed passenger Karissa Bode of North Mankato.  Investigators say Wieland told them Bode was driving the ATV, but surveillance shows he was actually in the driver’s seat.  He’s charged with criminal vehicular homicide.
