I'll guarantee you this you let any one of us do the same thing and they would have found room in jail for us and our charges wouldn't have been reduced either. No wonder people in this country have NO faith in our judicial system, I know I sure don't.

Well whenever I tried to read the article I got a blue screen with scrambled wording.

jumping to conclusions I see.
I tried to read it and couldn't so I asked the question.
You must be the lazy fool to jump to conclusions as if not willing to help. Did you know I had troubles with the reading.NO so therefore you jump to conclusions.
So sorry to have bothered you. Wait I didn't bother you , because I did not ask you specifically so you did NOT have to answer

To HMMMM:

WSAZ news reporter and on-air television personality Randy Yohe was arrested early Saturday morning on six misdemeanor charges that included driving under the influence of alcohol — a charge that was later reduced — and possession of marijuana.

Yohe, 59, of Huntington, W.Va., was pulled over at 12:30 a.m. Saturday after Officer Mike Delawder observed that he ran the stop sign at Marion Pike and Third Street in Coal Grove. Yohe, who was driving a silver Ford F-150, also drove over the concrete lane divider and crossed the centerline, according to Coal Grove Police Chief Eric Spurlock.

Yohe was charged with first-offense DUI, having an open container of alcohol, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia associated with the marijuana, as well as traffic violations for running a stop sign and leaving his lane, Spurlock said.

Yohe was arrested and taken to the Ironton Police Department where Yohe’s blood-alcohol level was determined to be .121, Spurlock said. The legal limit in Ohio is .08.

Authorities do not typically take individuals who commit misdemeanor DUI offenses to the Lawrence County Jail because of overcrowding issues, Spurlock said. Yohe was released on his own recognizance and called a taxicab.

“Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. I am deeply humiliated, embarrassed and sorry,” Yohe said.“I apologize to my station and to my wife. Nothing like this will ever happen again.”

Yohe said he did not know that a friend he had given a ride to had left the marijuana, listed as a small amount on the citation, and paraphernalia in his vehicle.

On Monday, the DUI charge was reduced to aggravated reckless driving by Spurlock, a move the chief said is routine for an individual’s first offense if there is a relatively low blood-alcohol level.

Aggravated reckless driving doesn’t revoke driving privileges and carries a $1,000 fine compared to an $800 fine for DUI.

Yohe picked up his car from the impound lot in the village Monday and satisfied all charges against him by paying $2,020 in fines. He still has the right to appear in court on Oct. 30 to change his plea or dispute the charges, Spurlock said.

A copy of the complete traffic ticket and officer narrative was not immediately available.

I bet if Charles Wallace or Casey Brammell had done this same thing, Randy would have broke his neck getting out here to put it on the news. Yeah people screw up, but does that stop Randy from shoving his camera and microphone into other peoples faces? I just feel like he should reap what he has sown.

Another thing, his first run-in with law isn't bad?

"First-offense DUI, having an open container of alcohol, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia associated with the marijuana, as well as traffic violations for running a stop sign and leaving his lane"

I guess if your family gets wiped out by someone like this, you'll say "Well it isn't that bad considering it's his first offense".

Why did you ignorant ass click on the link if you're only worried about this state? Was the damn TITLE not clear enough or do you lack READING COMPREHENSION? If you don't like the DAMN TOPIC don't READ it, simple as that! Afterall no need in BITCHING when no one forced your sorry ass to read it!


Yes this was on his time, but when you get behind a wheel impaired, it's on EVERYONE'S TIME! How would it look on WSAZ if they kept Randy Yohe and let him do a report on a drug bust? Pretty sorry if you ask me. When you're in the PUBLIC EYE, you're held to a higher standard than JOE SCHMO.

Another thing, you say we have more important things going on here in our county? I guess you think all these other Topix post are of MAJOR importance, like who's sleeping with the AEP man, who's hung better, what store has the better carryouts, etc. So why don't you get a DAMN LIFE AND PULL YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS!
