BUTTE (AP) — A tow truck driver called to remove a pickup truck damaged in a drunken driving crash in Butte was arrested after police alleged he, too, had been driving under the influence.
The Montana Standard reports 44-year-old Penny Mormon of Butte was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after four vehicles were struck along the street at about 12:40 a.m. Friday.
Officers called for a tow truck and 58-year-old David Banks of Butte responded.
As Banks was sweeping up debris from the street a resident came out to talk to him and suspected he had been drinking. The resident called 911 and responding police arrested Banks on suspicion of DUI.
Mormon also faces misdemeanor charges of hit-and-run, careless driving and failure to report an accident by the quickest means.
