Urine Sample Taken 2 Minutes Too Late: Felony Charges Dropped in Fatal Likcing Co. Crash
LICKING COUNTY (Jen French) -- Felony charges were dropped against a man accused of hitting and killing a motorcyclist while allegedly driving under the influence of drugs. A judge says the officers who collected his urine sample after the crash were two minutes too late.
29-year-old Anthany Krebs is accused of rear-ending 44-year-old Randle OBryan when he was stopped at a light on State Route 16 near Cherry Valley Road.
He had been out partying and having a good time and they had found all of the drugs and stuff in his car, said OBryans friend Kathy Waites.
According to a motion to dismiss the case, police collected Krebs urine at 8:30 p.m., just minutes after the three-hour collection limit required by Ohio law.
"It's just not fair," said Waites. "I think it's ridiculous. I truly think the man should pay for what he's done."
Kreb could still face misdemeanor charges. The case is being forwarded to the Law Directors office for consideration.
ABC 6/FOX 28 reached out to Krebs attorney, Kristin Burkett for comment. She did not immediately return any phone calls.
Family and friends say OBryan leaves behind his two children and several relatives.
