Madison County is on the northeastern outskirts of the Indy metro area, but an officer in the little town of Edgewood acted like he was trying to move up from double-A ball and audition for the bigs down in the IMPD.
Another OWI fatality, only this time the officer was off duty, in a private vehicle, and zoned out on painkillers rather than tonsil polish, none of which makes his victim any less dead.
Just becomes it comes in a little plastic bottle from a pharmacy rather than a big aluminum can from a convenience store doesn't mean it can't make you too messed up to be operating a motor vehicle. Wash it down with a big gulp of hubris, and now you're looking at a B Felony for OWI with a fatality.
And in the wake of l'Affaire Bisard, I'm thinking that it's going to be tough to find a lenient jury in the 317, unless there are more deaf mutes who don't own televisions or take the paper than I assume there are.
