The President and CEO of Dippin’ Dots Stephen Scott Fischer, 38, was arrested after an alleged DUI crash in Edmond in early April.
A dashcam footage of the crash that happened after midnight on April 8 near Covell Road and N. Broadway was released by Edmond Police.
An officer was traveling north on Boulevard Street toward Covell Road when he observed power lines arcing and saw a power pole had been hit by something, according to the report. A little further north, the officer saw a white BMW crashed into a house at 2500 N. Broadway.
After more investigations, officers learned the car had gone through the fence and crashed into two other homes before coming to a stop. Police found the driver who was identified as Fischer, uninjured but pinned inside the car.
Officers spoke with Fischer, who admitted he had drank at least three mixed drinks at the “Dancing For A Miracle” event that happened at Children’s hospital earlier Saturday night, according to reports. Fischer was listed as a dancing celebrity at the event.
Fischer was released by firefighters and told police he had no knowledge of getting into the wreck. According to the report, Fischer told police he lived near 122nd Street and Western Avenue and thought he was close to his house.
Fischer was moved from scene to OU Edmond hospital as a precaution. After being examined and cleared, he was arrested. The report stated that Fischer refused a blood test.
After being taken to the Edmond City Jail he refused to sign a notice of revocation of his license and refused to speak with police. He was then booked into jail on one complaint of driving under the influence of alcohol.
A spokesperson for Dippin’ Dots released the following statement on this incident:
“While it is inappropriate to comment on specific details at this time, we are grateful that Mr. Fischer did not suffer any life-threatening injuries as a result of this single car accident. He remains most appreciative of the firefighters, first responders, and medical personnel who assisted him.” (www.newson6.com)
