The CEO of ice cream empire Dippin’ Dots was arrested earlier this month after he allegedly crashed his car into a power line pole and two houses in Oklahoma, police revealed Wednesday.

Edmond Police said 38-year-old Stephen Scott Fischer was charged with driving under the influence for an incident that occurred after he left a local children’s hospital just after midnight on April 8.

Police said an officer encountered Fischer at the scene of a crash on Boulevard Street near Covell Road.

In the police report, obtained by Fox News, the officer said he noticed that power lines were arcing and a power pole had been hit. Further up the road, the office said he found a white BMW that had crashed against a house.

The driver, who identified himself as Fischer, was uninjured from the crash, but pinned inside the car, officials said.

The businessman admitted he drank at least three mixed drinks at a Dancing for a Miracle event sponsored by the Children’s Hospital Foundation, authorities said. According to the event’s website, Fischer was listed as one of the “dancing celebrities.”

“I asked [Fischer] about the accident and he said he did not remember anything from the accident and could not remember how the accident happened,” the police report stated.

The affidavit said Fischer was “swaying back and forth, his speech was slowed and slurred.”

Police eventually determined Fischer’s car spiraled off the road, crashed through a fence and hit two other homes before coming to a stop.

Fischer was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He was arrested on a complaint of driving under the influence after refusing to take a blood test and would not cooperate with police.

A spokesman for Dippin’ Dots said in a statement to News9 that it would be “inappropriate to comment on specific details.”

“We are grateful that Mr. Fischer did not suffer any life-threatening injuries as a result of this single car accident,” the statement said. “He remains most appreciative of the firefighters, first responders and medical personnel who assisted him.”

Drunk driver teacher caught out by her own dashcam as she swerved across roads

Drunk driver teacher caught out by her own dashcam as she swerved across roads

The camera never lies.

Which is a disaster for drunk teacher Louise Willard whose own dashcam caught her swerving all over the road and hitting speeds of up to 51mph along residential streets.

The shocking footage showed Willard, 41, who was three times over the limit hitting curbs, going into grass verges and narrowly missing workmen in the road and oncoming traffic during the 20 minute drunken drive.

Her white Vauxhall Corsa even crashed into the back of parked Audi in Bexhill.

Undeterred, Willard reversed off in her damaged car but stopped a short distance later.

Sussex Police were first alerted at 5.24pm on 4 April by a member of the public who reported the Corsa repeatedly clipping the kerb on the A259 Marsh Road.

Shortly afterwards, a second call was received reporting the same car erratically driving before crashing into a parked Audi A4.

She was found uninjured by officers in her car and failed a roadside breathalyser test blowing 94mcg of alcohol per 100ml of breath when the legal limit is 35mcg.

She pleaded guilty to drink driving and failing to stop at Hastings Magistrates’ Court yesterday and was banned from driving for two years.

Willard of Bexhill was also handed a 12-month community order, requiring her to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.

PC Nathan Langley, of the Polegate Roads Policing Unit, said: ‘The scary thing is this isn’t a particularly unusual or extraordinary example of drink-driving; the driver has displayed a number of characteristics which you would typically expect.

Report criticizes ex-State Police head for arrest report rewrite

Former State Police colonel Richard McKeon.

Wrapping up a five-month investigation, Attorney General Maura Healey won’t seek criminal charges against former top State Police officials who ordered a trooper to remove embarrassing details from the arrest report of a judge’s daughter. But Healey will ask the state Ethics Commission to review the case for possible conflict of interest violations, according to a report released by her office Friday.

A separate review, conducted by an outside investigator at the request of the Massachusetts State Police, found that then-colonel Richard McKeon used “flawed judgment” when he ordered a trooper to alter the report on the judge’s daughter, Alli Bibaud, who was arrested in October in Worcester for operating under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

McKeon and the command staff “eroded confidence in the management abilities of the [State Police,] both within the organization and among the public,” former state public safety secretary Kevin P. Burke wrote in his report, also released Friday. He called McKeon’s actions “unprecedented.”

Driver indicted in death of local teen girl

The force of the crash that killed 14-year-old Chelsea Bowman in October 2016 was so powerful, it split the car she was riding in, in half, and threw her from the car.

Eighteen months after the deadly head-on crash, the driver of the Dodge Neon Bowman was riding in, 21-year-old Merle Jay Lunsford II of Dayton, was indicted for vehicular homicide and operating a vehicle under the influence of marijuana and OVI.

Prosecutors said the teen was ejected from a rear seat of the car when Lunsford crossed the center line on Frederick Pike and hit an oncoming car.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Merle Jay Lunsford II.
