Todd S. Collett, 48, was arrested after dispatch received two reports, one from pedestrian who flagged down a Sheriff’s Deputy and gave a REDDI report, and the second from the manager of the CY Albertsons who reported a bleeding man purchased alcohol, requiring the closure of the store while they cleaned up the blood, according to police affidavit.

A Casper police officer located Collett’s blood spattered pickup in the Albertsons parking lot and found Collett walking. Collett had no explanation for the cuts on his right hand. He allegedly denied driving, told officers he was too drunk to drive, and repeatedly asked not to be arrested.

When arrested, Collett refused to give a breath sample.

Charging documents say Judge Michael Patchen was called and he approved the warrant for a blood sample, but Collett still refused.

At his initial appearance Tuesday, Collett was charged with 4th offense DUI, a felony punishable by up to 2 years in prison and 10,000 dollar fine, and driving under suspension.

Circuit Court Judge Steven Brown set bond at 3,000 cash or surety and ordered Collett to day reporting and to complete an Addiction Severity Index.
