What is "Old Reems Creek Road"? I don't know of anywhere along Reems Creek Road where there is a stop sign. At one end of Reems Creek Road there is a traffic signal. At the opposite end of the road, there is a stop sign at the intersection with Maney Branch Road and Sugar Cove Road...but there's no such road as "Old Reems Creek Road" that I can find.
If the driver failed to stop at the traffic light, maybe the writer(s) mean Old Weaverville Highway. If that's the case, then they got two things wrong: 1. the name of the road and 2. traffic signal vs. stop sign.
Another example of the VERY sloppy reporting by our friends at the Asheville C-T. If they can't get the details of a simple traffic incident correct, what else are they getting wrong???

What, you mean it took over a month to charge the guy? Last I remember from reading other blogs is that an average citizen would have been charged that night, but a cop gets special treatment when it takes a while to bring charges.

Was Ballard a cop?

If the reporter copied the story from a police report, That means the report is not accurate and said defendant goes free! FREE AT LAST,FREE AT LAST.

No, those comments are in reference to the McDowell County Sheriff's Deputy who was involved in a fatal wreck. He received the same charge as this case and it took approximately a month to charge him, as well.
Everyone on that Topix forum was up in arms that the police officer was receiving special treatment and the average Joe Blow citizen would be jailed immediately.
I just wish some people from that forum would step up and admit they were wrong.
Just wishful thinking, though.

The Cop Haters have all slid back under their rocks. They won't comment now since an "average joe" was treated the same way Deputy Watson was. God forbid if this average joe is only indicted for a misdemeanor and gets probation for an ACCIDENT.
