With the most serious charges dropped, guilty pleas were entered by two of the 12 exotic car drivers ticketed for a high-speed cruise on Interstate 394 in the west metro.
Swen D. Corbin, 44, of Minnetonka, and David K. Morgan, 26, of St. Louis Park each pleaded guilty Monday in Hennepin County District Court to a petty misdemeanor speeding count and were ordered to pay fines and fees totaling $378.
Misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, careless driving and failure to drive with due care were dropped.
Six have now pleaded guilty to being in the pack driving more than 100 miles per hour along I-394 on April 23, 2016. Five have won dismissals, and one case remains pending against Justin M. Krueger, 25, of Beach, N.D.
Many of the drivers ticketed belonged to Corbin’s MN Exotics and Supercars, an invitation-only club in the Twin Cities that touts itself as “one of the most exclusive” for high-end cars in Minnesota. Among the models driven that day were Lamborghini, Maserati and McLaren.
The patrol said roughly two dozen sports cars left Morrie’s Luxury Auto and headed west on I-394 between Louisiana Avenue and Hwy. 169.
The high-speed cruise occurred in moderate traffic for several miles on westbound I-394, then onto Hwy. 12.
