Perry McCall was arrested early Dec. 29 by an Indiana State trooper at U.S. 31 and Eastern Boulevard. A police-administered field test showed his blood-alcohol content at the time to be .19 percent, more than twice Indiana’s legal limit, the Clark County Sheriff’s Department said.
Because McCall declined to take a certified test, the results aren’t admissible in court, a sheriff’s department spokesman said.
McCall was arrested on a similar charge in May and in 2001.
Rhodes said the town council will begin its search for a new attorney soon but has no timetable yet for filling the contract position.
McCall will continue to help the town until a new attorney is found, Rhodes said.
Richard Bolling, 42, is charged with aggravated DUI, reckless homicide and leaving the scene of a fatal accident in the May 2009 crash that killed Trenton Booker. Trenton was riding his bike late at night with a friend Michael when Bolling allegedly struck him at 81st Street and Ashland Avenue and then fled the scene.
Prosecutors alleged in opening statements that Bolling, who was off-duty at the time, wasn’t given a field sobriety test until nearly two hours after he was arrested driving the wrong way down a street shortly after the crash. Officers at the scene said he passed the exam.
According to court filings by prosecutors, an undisclosed superior officer was captured on a video recording at the crash scene telling Bolling he would “try to help you out as much as possible.”
It was four and a half hours after the crash, and only under pressure from an Internal Affairs sergeant, when Bolling submitted to a Breathalyzer and registered 0.079 percent, just under the legal limit of 0.08 percent, prosecutors said.
Prosecutors are expected to call an expert witness who will estimate that Bolling’s blood-alcohol content exceeded the legal limit at the time of the crash, according to court filings.
The victim told police he was driving his 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood east on Manassas Drive, Manassas Park, about to turn on northbound Cabbel Drive at 4:44 p.m. when a 1997 Nissan Altima hit his car’s front and rear passenger side, Manassas Park police spokeswoman Karen Barton said.
The driver of the Nissan—later identified as Cristobal Gutierrez—reportedly turned onto nearby Polk Drive, where the victim blocked Gutierrez’ car, authorities said.
Gutierrez got out and ran. The victim called 911 while chasing him.
Police found Gutierrez, 49, of Manassas Drive, at the intersection of Old Centreville Road and Polk Drive, Manassas Park, and charged him with DUI – 3rd offense, driving after being declared an habitual offender, hit and run attended/damage over $1,000, Barton said.
He was held without bond, and has a court date of Feb. 23.
District Judge Michael Gibbons told Shawn Hudler he may be eligible for parole in 12 months. He gave him credit for 140 days in custody.
Hudler was arrested July 4, 2009, and convicted of his third driving under the influence offense in three years.
He was admitted to the DUI diversion program, but was arrested Oct. 25, 2010, and accused of committing two burglaries and a petty theft while in the program which lasts up to three years.
25-year-old South Lake Tahoe man was sentenced Monday to three years in Nevada State Prison for felony driving under the influence after he was dropped from a diversion program for committing additional crimes.
He was sentenced to two years in prison in California on the new offenses, and released after one year to be returned to Douglas County where he was held in custody.
“I’ve gone through a lot in the last few years. I’ve changed a lot. I am prepared to move forward,” Hudler said.
The defendant said his family in Colorado was ready to support his move to that state.
“Unfortunately, you didn’t make the decision to change when you were offered the opportunity through DUI court,” Gibbons said. “The state has asked for substantially more time because you committed another crime on the diversion program.”
Brandy Allen was behind bars Monday morning, waiting to face a judge.
Her family disputed the allegations.
Allen insists she drank a small amount of alcohol the night she crashed, killing her daughter, but investigators say it was enough to put here over the legal limit.
A makeshift memorial stands in the spot that 10-year-old Brianna Johnson died, and her five-year-old sister, Genia, critically injured.
Police said she was driving, got distracted and slammed her car into the back of a parked semi on the morning after Christmas 2011.
Tests showed her blood alcohol level was .17, twice the legal limit, although Allen’s friends dispute that.
Jessica Lynn Lanier of Goose Creek was originally charged with DUI after S.C. Highway Patrol troopers said she struck the firefighters as they were working at the site of a car crash on Oct. 19.
Highway Patrol Cpl. Bob Beres said she was arrested on the upgraded charge Thursday based on one of the fire fighters’ injuries.
She was released on her own recognizance from the Berkeley County jail Friday morning, according to court records. Her attorney could not be reached.
Goose Creek fire Capt. Michael Althoff, 45, and firefighter Christopher Harrison, 31, were working an accident on U.S. Highway 176 near the Walmart store shortly after midnight when they were struck by a car heading west, Beres said.
Both men suffered leg injuries, according to a Goose Creek police report.
Sam Steelman, 25, was arrested in Springfield, Mo. just before midnight on Dec. 11, police said.
Steelman allegedly refused to take a blood-alcohol test, which, under Missouri law, automatically calls for the state to revoke his drivers license for a year.
In a court motion filed shortly after the arrest, a lawyer for Sam Steelman asked a judged for a hearing where the case could either be thrown out, or Steelman could be issued a "limited hardship permit" that would allow him to drive for work — his mother’s campaign.
Steelman "is gainfully employed and uses a motor vehicle in the course of employment," wrote his lawyer, Adam Woody.
Revoking his driving privileges "would result in an undue hardship" to Sam Steelman and others.
The Circuit Court judge in the case has delayed revocation of Steelman’s license until at least March 30, when he is set to appear in court.
Sam Steelman’s title with his mother’s Senate campaign is "deputy manager," but, in the absence of an actual campaign manager, he is the de facto head of the campaign.

Jessica Marie Bloom, 22, pleaded guilty two months ago to DUI and hit-and-run charges. She will be sentenced to four years and four months in state prison.
Gunnery Sgt. Dave Smith was eastbound on Bernardo Center Drive near West Bernardo Drive about 12:30 p.m. last July 31 when he was hit from behind—while waiting at a red light—by a woman driving a Chevrolet TrailBlazer.
The collision launched the 34-year-old victim onto the hood of the mid- size SUV, then into the street, Williams said.
The prosecutor said Bloom got out of the vehicle and appeared to be upset, frantically asking witnesses, "Is he dead?"
The defendant loaded her front bumper into her SUV and drove off, but witnesses followed her to her apartment a short distance away and called police, Williams said.
After her arrest, Bloom’s blood-alcohol level was measured at .37 percent, more than four times the legal limit for driving, according to the prosecutor.
Defense attorney Peter Liss told a judge at Bloom’s arraignment that she left the crash scene because she wanted to tell her husband, who is also a Marine, what had happened.
Barry E. Staub, 53, of Hanover Road in Conewago Township, Adams County, is charged with DUI and failing to stay within his traffic lane. A preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 22, according to District Judge Daniel Bowman.
Barry E. Staub is the lieutenant in charge of York’s state police barracks for nearly five years is accused of driving drunk in Adams County
State police in Gettysburg filed the charge Friday morning.
Adams County District Attorney Shawn Wagner told The York Dispatch he will refer the case to the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office sometime Friday.
He said both he and first assistant district attorney Brian Sinnett would have a conflict of interest in prosecuting Staub.
"We’re friends with Mr. Staub," Wagner said. "Our office clearly has a conflict."
Retired: Maria Finn, state police press secretary, confirmed Staub’s retirement was effective Friday. She also said Staub was placed on restricted duty after the traffic stop.
Staub did not answer his home phone Friday morning; a message left there was not immediately returned. It’s unclear whether he’s retained an attorney.
