ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota State Patrol says test results show fired Minnesota Senate aide Michael Brodkorb's blood-alcohol content was over the legal limit after he crashed his SUV last month.

The patrol said Thursday that Brodkorb had a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.10 percent, which is over Minnesota's legal limit of 0.08 percent. The patrol says the case has been submitted to Lilydale City Attorney Tom Lehmann for review and possible charges.

A phone message left for Brodkorb was not immediately returned Thursday.

Brodkorb crashed his SUV on a highway near St. Paul Jan. 23. He was taken to Regions Hospital, where his family has said he was improving.

Brodkorb was a communications aide to Senate Republicans. He was fired in 2011 after an affair with then-Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch.
