MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Police in Mandan say a vehicle owned by the North Dakota Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger was involved in a rollover incident in Mandan.

Sgt. Jay Gruebele says a Chevy Tahoe being driven by 22-year-old Jesse Larson went off the road and rolled around 2:50 p.m. Tuesday.

Rauschenberger in a statement on Wednesday said he “showed poor judgment” when he lent his vehicle to Larson. Rauschenberger says he met Larson while undergoing alcohol addiction treatment.

Rauschenberger wasn’t in the vehicle during the incident. Police have cited Larson, of Mandan, with DUI and reckless driving. A police report shows the vehicle sustained serious front end damage.

Rauschenberger says he has received in-patient and out-patient addiction treatment.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple appointed Rauschenberger in November. The commissioner’s running for election to a full term.
