Update: Tuesday, Aug. 23 at 5:45 p.m.: Watch tonight at 10 for an exclusive interview with the woman in this video. We found out how she feels about the incident and what it might mean for her. Update: Monday, Aug. 22 at 6:10 p.m.:
According to court documents, Kenneth Teeter has five prior driving while intoxicated convictions on his record:
--November 1977 in Kansas City, Missouri--October 1983 in Camden County--June 1986 in Boone County--June 1998 in Camden County--June 2008 in Boone County
Troopers say he was driving Sunday without a license. Teeter TMs wife became irate and vulgar at troopers, at times begging officers to arrest her instead.
They did arrest her to begin with because she told them she was the driver. However, Teeter TMs injuries were consistent with him being driver, not his wife, so they brought her back to the scene and transferred the cuffs from her to him.
According to court documents, she tried to take the blame because another DWI conviction for her husband would mean jail time.
Update: Monday, Aug. 22 at 2:10 p.m.:
A man involved in a rollover crash Sunday afternoon is in the Boone County Jail on a DWI charge.
Prosecutors charged Kenneth Teeter with a chronic offender DWI charge. He has pleaded guilty to at least two previous Driving While Intoxicated charges. Both were in Boone County, one in 1986 and the other in 2007. Each time Teeter received two years of probation.
The charge against Teeter in 1986 indicated he was a repeat offender back then, but there are no other online court records against Teeter.
The bond amount for the most recent charge is $25,000. Court records also indicate Teeter is not allowed to drink intoxicants or drive a vehicle.
Teeter was not the one Highway Patrol troopers first arrested Sunday afternoon. They first took a woman into custody for the crash near Ashland.
In the video shown above, you can see her screaming and cursing at troopers. She does not face any charges at this time.
Warning: Video contains language that may not be suited for everyone.The Highway Patrol says alcohol was likely a contributing factor to the accident. The driver apparently lost control of the boat he was towing and caused the SUV to rollover. Nobody was injured.
Just before 4p.m Sunday an SUV pulling a boat was involved in a rollover accident on Highway 63 near Liberty Road.Injuries aren't known at this time. The northbound lanes of Highway 63 were shut down briefly so debris could be cleaned up.We have a crew headed to the scene.
