Donald Leroy Whitehead, a 47-year old white male from Chatfield, appeared before Judge Robert Benson in District Court on Monday, October 4, facing four counts of driving while impaired and one count of driving without a valid driver's license. If convicted on all five counts, Whitehead could face a maximum penalty of 17 years in prison and fines totaling up to $37,000. Chatfield Police Officer Grace McCallum was on patrol September 11, 2010, when she pulled into Kwik Trip and notice Donald Whitehead in the driver's seat of a vehicle parked in the lot. Officer McCallum knew he did not have a valid license, so a few minutes later when he pulled out of the Kwik Trip lot, she conducted a traffic stop. As Officer McCallum approached his vehicle she asked the defendant for his license and proof of insurance. He could not provide either one, and while she was talking with him, Officer McCallum detected a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. Whitehead failed the Field Sobriety Tests and a breath test indicated a .147. Officer McCallum placed the defendant under arrest and transported him to the Fillmore County Jail. While being booked, officers discovered a small bag on the defendant that contained marijuana. Whitehead has a previous record for driving while under the influence and without a driver's license because of alcohol, all within the past 10 years. He was also convicted of a prior felony DUI in 2004. Judge Benson set conditional bail at $3,000 and unconditional bail at $14,000. Whitehead's next scheduled court appearance is set for October 25, 2010.
