SHELDON—A 60-year-old Sheldon man was arrested about 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 17, on charges of second-offense operating while under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident — failure to provide aid or information.
The arrest of Bradley Wayne Hulley stemmed from an investigation into a hit-and-run on the 500 block of 11th Street, according to the Sheldon Police Department.
An officer spotted a vehicle, a 1994 Chevrolet pickup, with damage matching that from the accident and attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle.
Hulley did not stop until eight blocks later, according to court documents.
He told the officer he had seven or eight beers between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. then got into his vehicle, backed out of his driveway, struck a legally parked semitrailer and drove off. The driver of the semi was in the sleeper portion of the tractor.
Hulley had bloodshot, watery eyes; impaired balance; and the odor of an alcoholic beverage and failed preliminary sobriety tests.
