Man Arrested For Illegal Dumping, DUI, Open Container

TEA, S.D. – Authorities are reminding residents to dispose of yard waste in line with city and county regulations after an illegal dumping offense led to a DUI arrest for a Tea man last weekend.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy spotted 42-year-old Lennis Stahnke pull over in a rural area northwest of Tea around 9:30 Sunday night. Stahnke sped away from authorities leaving a pile of grass clippings in the roadway.

Deputies caught up with him later and he was arrested for illegal dumping, DUI and having an open container in a vehicle.
