After being given $200 by the person, Brinkman allegedly provided a plastic baggie containing 7.14 grams of meth. Three days later, he allegedly sold a little more than 14 grams of meth for $320 to the same person in Faribault.

At the time, he was also out on conditional release in four open Rice County cases, including first-, second- and third-degree drug sales and fifth-degree drug possession.
