Local sportscaster loses driver's license after second OVI arrest

Published: Fri, June 1, 2012 @ 10:17 p.m.


A local sports caster arrested in 2010 on a charge of operating a motor vehicle while impaired has been charged a second time with the offense.

Chad Krispinsky, 34, of Boardman, who works for WYTV-33, was charged at 2:25 a.m. Thursday.

A Boardman police officer said he spotted Krispinsky’s car drifting partially into the center of the road on Market Street near McClurg Road. The officer didn’t pull over Krispinsky’s car but noticed him a short time later on foot on Roche Way and spoke with him.

After detecting the smell of alcohol on Krispinsky’s breath, the officer gave him field sobriety tests. Krispinsky refused to take a Breathalyzer test and was arrested and advised that his license would be suspended for one year.

Krispinsky was scheduled for arraignment on the charge Friday in Mahoning County Area Court in Boardman. Court records don’t indicate whether he attended the hearing.

In August 2010, Krispinsky pleaded guilty in the county area court in Canfield to an amended charge of failure to maintain physical control of his motor vehicle after testing 0.181 on a Breathalyzer, more than twice the legal limit of .08.

Besides what you think about the police, I think this dude has a alcoholic problem and should address it. He shouldn't be driving. Thank God he didn't kill anyone.

Keep in mind the officer might have been able to run a license check on Market street, find out that he lives in the neighborhood where Roche Way is, and then just follow him there. When a previous DUI shows up on that check then it's not within the realms of stupidity for the officer to catch him later.

Whata great way to increase ratings - Does he go on TV lit up?

@Askmeificare--Have you ever heard him? I'd say he has to be.
