FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man accused of being drunk while operating a Zamboni ice-grooming machine during a high school hockey game has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence.

Steven Anderson allegedly was drunk on Jan. 30 when he was smoothing the ice for a girls’ game between Davies High School and Williston High. Spectators alerted South Sports Arena officials that Anderson allegedly was driving the Zamboni into the boards and appeared impaired.

Police say Anderson’s blood-alcohol level was 0.30, nearly four times the legal limit for driving.

The 27-year-old Anderson appeared in court on Thursday. A pretrial conference is scheduled March 25. He could face up to 30 days in jail and a $1,500 fine if convicted.

Court documents show Anderson pleaded guilty last month to an unrelated DUI charge.
