Matt Call is pissed off about Tyler Braunschweig's light hit-and-run sentence
|Braunschweig says he's eager to turn his life around, but Call would like to see him spend some more time behind bars before that happens.|
He's been sentenced to 180 days in the Hennepin County Workhouse (during which time he's eligible for work and school release), followed by less than three years of probation with a number of conditions, including no alcohol or controlled substance use.

The week before he entered his guilty plea, Braunschweig took to Facebook to express his hope that 2013 is the year his life turns around.
Here's his post:
Public Service Announcement: You can hit someone while driving 40+ MPH, under the influence (& underage), cause great bodily harm...-- Matt Call (@MatthewRCall) January 10, 2013
...leave them for dead, commit insurance fraud, essentially be on the run, and them "turn yourself in" after 3 months...-- Matt Call (@MatthewRCall) January 10, 2013
In a subsequent tweet, Call says Braunschweig admitted to being under the influence at the time of the hit-and-run during his sentencing, though nothing in the court record verifies that.
...you'll just get 180 days in jail and 3 years of probation.That's justice, yeah?Cc: @mayorrtrybak-- Matt Call (@MatthewRCall) January 10, 2013
