A Minneapolis man was arrested after crashing a vehicle that injured himself and three passengers early Saturday morning in Wisconsin. 

According to the Wisconsin State Patrol, 27-year-old Leonardo Gonzalez Gasper was under the influence of marijuana when the single-vehicle rollover crash happened around 2:40 a.m. on Interstate 94 in Eau Claire County.
