A Casper man will not contest charges that he was driving under the influence earlier this year.

Thirty-one year old Kirk Steffey has pleaded no contest to one charge of DUI

Casper police say in March, Steffey was driving the wrong way on “E” Street near Beverly, when he collided with another vehicle and a short time later, a sign at the Troopers Bingo Hall.

Steffey admitted to investigators he had been drinking earlier in the day.

A breathalyzer test showed that he had a blood alcohol content of point two-three, nearly three times the legal limit for driving.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a fifteen-to-eighteen month prison sentence.

Steffey is free on ten-thousand dollars bond, and will be sentenced at a later date.
