MUNCIE, Ind. (WISH) — A former Delaware County sheriff’s deputy has been charged with one felony and two misdemeanors after investigators said he drunkenly caused a multi-vehicle crash in September.
Todd Daily had a blood-alcohol level of nearly .39 percent at the time of the crash, according to court documents.
At the scene of the crash in September, Daily fell off the site of a cot because he wasn’t able to sit up on his own, according to the probable cause affidavit. He told an officer at the scene that he knew he needed to go to jail and was embarrassed that he crashed and hurt people. A witness told police Daily was driving between 65 and 70 mph on State Road 32 before the crash involving four vehicles.
The prosecutor charged Daily with causing serious bodily injury when operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol level of more than .08 percent, operating a vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person and operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol level of more than .15 percent.
Daily left the department at the end of September.
