CARMI, Ill. - A DUI stop turned up White County Sheriff Doug Maier's brother this weekend, in another incident in which Brad Maier has run afoul of the law.

This particular Maier, age 50 of Crossville, caught the eye of a Carmi officer at approximately 10:12 p.m. Saturday (September 9) driving a silver Ford F150 truck in town.

The officer reported that he viewed the vehicle drifting between the lines and eventually crossing the center line; as well, he reported that the driver failed to use turn signals on multiple turns before being stopped in a parking lott off of Cherry Street.

The officer reported he could smell an alcoholic beverage and noted that the driver (Maier) appears intoxicated. Subsequent field sobriety tests were conducted and Maier was arrested for DUI without incident. When he was brought to the jail, Maier tested .191 on a BAC test. He was cited for DUI and the vehicle was towed from the scene.

Also this past Saturday but a bit earlier in the day (8:48 a.m.), a warrant arrest was served on a 35-year-old Carmi woman. Authorities caught up with Brenda E. Fond at the popular location for nabbing people with warrants, Pundrake's in midtown. Fond got an additional charge over and above the warrant arrest after she was searched at the jail upon booking and an amount of alleged meth was found on her; she was also charged with Possession of Meth at that point. As of this afternoon she was still being held at the White County Jail.

As well on Saturday, at approximately 5:10 p.m., police received a call of an intoxicated female in the roadway at Third Street near Fackney Street, yelling at neighbors.

An officer arrived and located the female in the roadway still yelling at neighbors and being disruptive. Officers attempted to speak with her and she refused to stop and kept walking. An officer observed her obvious intoxication and placed her under arrest.

However, during the arrest, police said, the female, who turned out to be Neola D. Wilson, 19 (and therefore underage), of Carmi, continued to resist officers and was eventually taken to the ground before being controlled.

Wilson was transported to the jail and charged with Illegal Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor and Resisting a Peace Officer. Carmi police were assisted in this case by the White County Sheriff's Department.
