Everyone seemingly understands how dangerous it is to drink and drive, and most people heed the advice to simply not do it. However, the problem is that even if you do not drive after drinking, you never know if everyone else on the road is following the law. Tragically, the family of a Green Bay couple found out that at least one area man was breaking the law on August 27.
The Appleton Post-Crescent reported that Richard Ware of Gillett pleaded not guilty to charges of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and other charges. Ware allegedly was driving drunk in an accident that killed James Tyndall and his wife, Laura.
“Ware’s car went into a ditch and hit a power pole, but he was not injured, according to the Shawano County Sheriff’s Department. The driver of the semi and his 11-year-old son, who was a passenger, also were not hurt.Ware is charged with two counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, operating while under the influence and other violations. He entered his plea Monday in Shawano County Circuit Court, and a jury trial has been set for March 5.”
