Six revoked license convictions don't stop driver

Friday, June 11, 2010

A man with six convictions of driving on a revoked license was charged again early Wednesday after a traffic stop by Shelbyville police.

Barry Montele Rippy, 37, Depot Street, turned from Madison Street onto Anthony Road without using a turn signal at 2:54 a.m., officer Chris Vest said.

Rippy failed field sobriety tests and refused to take a breath test, Vest said. He was also charged with violation of the implied consent and light laws and was released on $11,500 bond.

Beer was stolen Wednesday night from the Hoodlum Alley Cruisers clubhouse, North Jefferson Street, police said.

Glass in the front door was shattered by a brick, a "busted" Michelob Light beer was at the building's entrance and the cooler's door was open, the report said.
