Three New DWI Charges Filed

Three new DWI charges were filed in Worth County Circuit Court by Prosecuting Attorney David Baird. Levi Saville-Carter (19) of Burlington Junction was charged on November 7th. An affidavit from the Missouri State Highway Patrol alleged that on September 24th at 4:01 am on 46 and Indigo, Saville-Carter was stopped for failure to drive on the right half of the road. The officer alleged that he was in an intoxicated state and detected an odor of alcohol. The patrol seized two cans of Busch Light Beer. The patrol alleged that he tested at .199% on the blood alcohol test. He was also charged for failure to maintain financial responsibility and failure to drive on the right half of the roadway for driving all over the roadway.

Brett Perkins (22) of Hatfield was charged on November 8th with DWI. On October 23rd at 4:19 am, the Highway Patrol, according to an affidavit filed by them, alleged that they got a call regarding a vehicle stopped in the roadway on 46 and 180th. At 4:56 am, the patrol officer arrived and observed the vehicle facing northbound in the center of the roadway. A Worth County Sheriff's officer was on the scene. The patrol officer observed the vehicle in question with its headlights on, the engine running, the vehicle in drive, and Perkins with his foot on the brake pedal. The cops reached in, turned the vehicle off, and took the keys. The blood alcohol content, according to the allegation, was .103%. He was also charged with failure to place the vehicle as far to the right side of the road as possible and no plates.

Colton Weehler (27) of Mount Ayr was charged with DWI on October 24th; he was charged as a prior offender for a conviction back in 2012. A Missouri State Highway Patrol officer conducted a stop at Sunny Slope on September 24th at 1:28 am according to their affidavit after Weehler failed to come to a complete stop at Main and Maple in Grant City. The officer observed Weehler in an intoxicated state and alleged that he observed some beer cans in the vehicle. The officer alleged that his blood alcohol content was .107%.

All charges are merely allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
