According to court records, police were called to the scene of a hit-and-run accident in Detroit Lakes about 8 p.m. Oct. 6.

Witnesses reported that a blue station wagon with wood grain siding and South Dakota license plates had pulled out in front of another vehicle on Roosevelt Avenue, causing an accident.

Two people were inside the vehicle that was hit on the right front side, and one of them suffered bruising from seat belts and was taken by ambulance to the emergency room at St. Mary's Innovis Hospital.

Witnesses allegedly identified Dixon as the driver of the station wagon, and one followed him to where he parked on Andrews Avenue and Union Street, a short distance away.

Officers found him in a residence on the 500 block of East Union Street. Dixon allegedly smelled strongly of alcohol, admitted being the driver of the station wagon, and said he left the scene because his license was canceled.

Officers allegedly found several cans of Milwaukee's Best beer in the station wagon, including an open can. Dixon was taken to jail, where his blood alcohol level allegedly tested at .09 percent.

He appeared Oct. 7 before District Judge Peter Irvine, who set bond at $15,000 without conditions or $5,000 with standard conditions of release. His next court appearance is Oct. 26.
