The Mahtomedi man arrested in a 2010 crash that severely injured a Woodbury teen is back behind Washington County bars.
Edward Thomas Jaworski, 38, was charged Feb. 24 with first-degree test refusal following a rollover crash on I-35W in Roseville. He was taken to Washington County jail on a warrant; he was being held on $150,000 bail.
The arrest marks the second for Jaworski since the Aug. 22, 2010, crash at Valley Creek Road and Woodbury Drive that severely injured East Ridge High School student Sean Fitzpatrick. Two other teens, Woodbury High School students Paige Plunkett and Chelsea Vadnais, were also in the car when Jaworski allegedly rearended it while traveling at what police estimated was 80 mph.
Jaworski, who registered a blood-alcohol content of .24 after the August 2010 crash, was charged with three counts of felony criminal vehicular operation and one count of misdemeanor DWI in that case. He has pleaded not guilty in the case, which is scheduled for a March 21 jury trial.
He was also arrested in September for violating release conditions when an alcohol monitoring device allegedly detected alcohol in his system. He was ordered to a attend a 28-day treatment program at Hazelden Treatment Center.
