MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Police say preliminary test results show that a central Indiana sheriff’s deputy had a blood-alcohol level more than four times the legal limit to drive when he was involved in a weekend crash.
A Muncie police report says a blood test on Delaware County Deputy Todd Daily found a blood-alcohol level of nearly 0.39 percent. The state’s legal limit is 0.08 percent.
Muncie police Sgt. Michael Engle tells The Star Press it could be a few weeks before official test results are available.
The 46-year-old deputy faces preliminary charges of driving while intoxicated. Police say he drove into a stopped car Saturday on Indiana 32 near Muncie, starting a four-vehicle crash that hurt two people.
Daily has been placed on administrative leave. He doesn’t have a listed phone number.
