DEARBORN COUNTY, IN (FOX19) - It may be the happiest mug shot you’ve ever seen, but the charges are nothing to smile about.
Dearborn County deputies say Brooks Royal, 36, crashed his vehicle on train tracks March 25 and got stuck. It happened just before 2 a.m. near Vine Street in Lawrenceburg.
Royal is accused of taking off, but was arrested for leaving the scene of a crash and operating while intoxicated.
According to the affidavit, officers said they observed Royal to have slurred speech, unsteady balance, bloodshot eyes, and a strong odor of alcohol.
