The only problem was there wasn't any ice to be had, and his truck and trailer wound up underwater.

I started doing drug abuse prevention at the St. Cloud children's home in 1986 when crack was king. This was a stimulant, a variation of cocaine. There was a nationwide crime surge to smuggle it into the country, distribute it, consume and pursue refills. A side effect of high-powered stimulants is agitation, often including a hot temper.

Minnesota Senator Seeks Donations For Family Charged in US Capitol Riot

(Lindstrom, MN) -- Republican state Senator Mark Koran from North Branch in east-central Minnesota is asking people to donate to a family in Lindstrom that faces federal criminal charges stemming from the January 6th insurrection at the U-S Capitol. The Star Tribune reports Koran posted a link to a crowdfunding site launched by a member of the Westbury family, saying "they need assistance to mount a fair defense from an overbearing Dept. of Justice" against charges "which seem to be just to punish opposing views." Minnesota Democratic Party Chairman Ken Martin says Koran's post is among recent examples of "dangerous extremism within the Minnesota Republican Party."
