After a brief scuffle, a Norman Police officer arrive and helped Hoelscher get Peter’s arms behind his back and then handcuffed him, according to Hoelscher.
“His speech was slurred and lethargic,” Hoelscher said. “He had a toothpick sticking out of the top of his forehead. Based on my training experience, he appeared to be under some intoxicants.”
Douglass asked Hoelscher if it was possible that the slurred speech, lethargy could all have been the results of the collision. Hoelscher said yes.
A pair of Norman police officers and paramedic Travis Snow all testified before the day’s proceedings ended.
The trial resumes at 8:45 p.m. Monday in the courtroom of District Judge Tracy Schumacher. She released jurors for the weekend, admonishing them not to discuss the case or read any media reports.
