Kasson-Mantorville Football Coach Arrested for DUI
Kasson, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Kasson-Mantorville school district has placed its high school football coach on administrative leave after learning he was arrested for DUI.
The arrest was made last Saturday, just hours after Broc Threinen’s team defeated Rochester John Marshall.
According to the criminal complaint, he was pulled over around 2:00 AM in Kasson after an officer saw him driving erratically. An open beer can was in the front seat area. Threinen was taken to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office where a breath test indicated he had a blood/alcohol concentration of .21. Threinen was charged with two counts of DWI and one count of open bottle.
Threinen also serves as district’s Activities Director.
The district superintendent has released a statement indicating Threinen will not coach the rest of the season.
"We have placed Broc Threinen on administrative leave for the remainder of the season for his coaching duties and on administrative leave until October 10 for his Activities Directors position."
"Our Defensive Coordinator, Joel Swanson, will be interim coach for this week as we continue to make decisions related to the football team. With Joel's previous varsity Coaching experience, we are confident in his and the rest of the coaching staff's ability to represent the KoMets well at all levels of our program."
"Activities Directors responsibilities will be shared by Trent Langemo, our high school principal and Josh Larsen, our Middle School Principal. I am extremely confident in their abilities to continue to add value to our many successful programs at KM during this time frame."
