Alcohol appears to be involved in a crash that injured a local man Thursday, April 29 in Hubbard County, according to a press release from the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office.

A one-vehicle rollover was reported at 1:19 a.m. on 200th Street in Todd Township.

Deputies found the driver, Michael Schupp, 32, of Park Rapids, sitting on the roadway. The report states they detected slurred speech and the smell of an alcoholic beverage coming from him. The report further says Schupp admitted he was drunk, and a preliminary breath test revealed a blood alcohol concentration of 0.19.

According to the sheriff’s office, Schupp was driving his 2004 Toyota Corolla east on 200th Street when he drove off the road into the ditch. The vehicle collided with an approach, went airborne and overturned multiple times.

North Memorial Ambulance transported Schupp to CHI St. Joseph’s Health in Park Rapids to be treated for a possible head injury.


Deputies obtained a search warrant to take a blood sample from Schupp. The sample was sent for testing to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The incident remains under investigation.
