COLUMBIA — Information about Gary Pinkel's blood alcohol level at the time of his arrest will not be released until driving while intoxicated charges are filed in court by the Boone County prosecutor's office, Maj. Tom Reddin of the Boone County Sherriff's Department said Thursday afternoon.
Cassandra Rogers, assistant Boone County prosecutor, said late Thursday afternoon that she had received the reports and was going to look them over and make a decision on formal charges. She said she did not know when she would make a decision, although she said she usually decides quickly.
In Missouri, the penalty for a first-time conviction of driving while intoxicated is a 30-day suspension of the driver's license. After 30 days, the driver may receive a 60-day restricted driving privilege, with eligibility for full reinstatement after those 90 days, according to information from the Missouri Department of Revenue.
