NEW YORK MILLS, Minn. — An Otter Tail County man who had at least 28 DWI arrests on his record has died.
67-year-old Danny Bettcher of New York Mills, Minn., died of natural causes at his home. He had recently served time in a Minnesota state prison, but was released this past summer.
Bettcher had DWI arrests dating back to the 1980s. In a WDAY News interview years ago, he said that "he just liked to drink." At one point, his 28-DWI arrest history was a record in the state.
Family said in his obituary that while his life may be described as wayward, Bettcher would help anyone with anything, and had a heart of gold.
