Kitterman’s recent arrest came after police conducted a welfare check on Kitterman after receiving a report that he was the victim of an assault.  Authorities found him on the floor of his home.  Kitterman failed a Portable Breathalyzer Test blowing a .193 Blood Alcohol Content.  The legal limit of intoxication in Minnesota is .08.

His sister Connie Kitterman, 44, is serving six years in prison for First Degree Assault charges for the shooting.  Danny Kitterman and Jeffrey Thauwald were at the scene when the shooting occurred.

Drinking alcohol is also a violation for a previous DWI charge.  In March, Kitterman told the Pine County Court he consumed six beers and two ounces of Jagermeister the night of the shooting.
