Jury Acquits North Dakota’s Frattin of Drunk Driving Charge

North Dakota forward Matt Frattin has been acquitted on drunk driving charges, the Grand Forks Herald reported.

A jury of six Grand Forks County (N.D.) residents delivered a not guilty verdict after less than 30 minutes of deliberation on Tuesday, the newspaper reported.

Frattin, a junior, was dismissed from the team in August for what was called a violation of team rules. That move came after he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

Frattin was reinstated to the team in late December.

The Grand Forks Herald reported that Frattin was pulled over by campus police in the early morning hours of Aug. 19, and a test at the police station recorded his blood-alcohol level at .12 percent. The legal limit in North Dakota is .08 percent.
