Sanborn man sentenced for passing out with loaded gun in area bar

A Sanborn man was sentenced in Redwood County District Court for passing out with a loaded gun at local bar last May.

According to court records, at about 10 p.m. on May 27 of last year, the Redwood County Sheriff’s Office was called to the American Legion in Sanborn on a report a customer had passed out on a picnic table. The person making the call stated there was a handgun magazine near the customer.

Deputies found Tyler Duane Warren, age 34, of Sanborn, slumped over a patio table outdoors. During a search, the deputy found a handgun in a front right hip holster. The handgun had a round in the chamber and a full magazine. Warren did not have his carry permit in his possession at the time. A blood alcohol test showed Warren’s reading was a .221 blood alcohol level. At that point, Warren was placed under arrest for having a blood alcohol level higher than .04 while in possession of a firearm.

On Feb. 4, as part of an amended court decision, Warren was sentenced for the misdemeanor of carrying a pistol while under the influence of alcohol to 90 days local confinement, stayed 87 days for one year, with credit for three days time served, one year supervised probation, and fees and fines of $285.
