Recent DWI Charges in the News: Prized Teacher and Mr. Ding-A-Ling Driver

Teacher Stopped for DWI

Police in Virginia recently stopped a high school teacher from Richmond, Virginia for speeding. Allegedly, Danica Millner was travelling 61 miles per hour in an area zoned at 40 miles per hour. As reported by NBC12.com, when Ms. Milner was stopped, law enforcement officers allegedly detected a strong odor of alcohol, her indistinct speech and blood-shot eyes. Officers also noted that Ms. Milner had difficulty rolling down the appropriate window of her automobile. According to the criminal report – she declined the field sobriety test. The pending charges against her include: speeding, driving while intoxicated (DWI) and the refusal of a sobriety test.

Two years ago, Ms. Milner was awarded for her excellence in teaching at Thomas Jefferson High School in Richmond, Virginia. A representative from the school district where Ms. Milner works, stated that Richmond Public Schools currently still employs her. The school district plans to await a final outcome of the case before any action on its part is deemed necessary.

Ms. Milner’s court date is set for the end of July 2013.

Ice Cream Driver – gets DWI and loses job

A story posted on CBSNEWS.com, outlines the latest regarding Phillip Hollister, 53, and his alleged DWI charge. On July 6, 2013, Mr. Hollister was arrested for allegedly swerving the ice cream truck he drove in Gloversville, New York. Law enforcement officials claim that he went into oncoming traffic and nearly hit an officer’s vehicle. Once stopped, Mr. Hollister took a field sobriety test and police indicate that his blood alcohol content (BAC) was 0.15 percent. The legal BAC limit in the State of New York is 0.08 percent while the legal limit for drivers of commercial vehicles is 0.04 percent.

As a result of the DWI charge, Mr. Hollister was recently fired from his job as an ice cream truck driver for the Mr. Ding-A-Ling Ice Cream truck company. Mr. Ding-A-Ling is allowed to maintain its ice cream truck permit in the city of Gloversville as long as Mr. Hollister is not behind the wheel.

Mr. Hollister was in the news earlier this year when territorial operators from a rival ice cream truck company, Sno Cone Joe, hassled and stalked him.

Mr. Hollister’s court date regarding the DWI is set for August 15, 2013.
