Hancock cop faces drunk-driving charge

December 22, 2010

A Hancock County sheriff’s deputy made his first court appearance Wednesday to answer charges that he drove drunk while on duty and caused an accident. According to Greenfield police, Deputy Michael Robinson had a blood-alcohol content of 0.16—twice the legal limit for driving—when he was tested after the Tuesday morning crash. Investigators thought the icy roads caused Robinson to lose control of his vehicle, but department protocol calls for routine blood-alcohol testing after accidents.
