Omaha Man Sentenced for DUI

thumb_96a0a96e2e76e06FORSYTH, Mo. – Judge Carr Woods sentences 53-year-old Rocky Lee Barrows to eight years in the Missouri Department of Corrections for a Class B felony DUI.

According to Taney County Prosecuting Attorney Jeff Merrell, Barrows was pulled over by a state trooper in December 2010, after the officer noticed a broken headlamp and taillight. Barrows insisted he wasn’t driving but rather eating chicken. The officer reports the man used profanity, slurred his speech, and exhibited a strong odor of intoxicants. Barrows refused all sobriety tests, according to a statement.

Barrows has a prior history of intoxication-related traffic convictions, therefor he is charged with a Class B felony for being a “chronic” DWI offender.
