Wednesday morning in Montgomery County, Huntsville resident Calli Dretke pleaded guilty to a charge of felony intoxicated assault of a peace officer. It all stems from an incident on April 22nd of 2012 in which officers say Dretke crashed into a Breath Alcohol Testing van and two marked Montgomery County patrol cars on Research Forest Road in the Woodlands. Montgomery County Sheriff Deputy Stephen Jones suffered a broken leg when he was hit by Dretke’s vehicle.
Dretke was given 10 years probation and a fine of $4,000 plus court costs. Her driver’s license will be suspended for one year, and she has to perform 500 hours of community service.
She is also required to make a formal apology to Deputy Jones and speak to students at Huntsville High School about the dangers of DWI. An ignition interlock that detects blood-alcohol level is required to be installed in her vehicle. She will also serve 90 days of house arrest.
