TIMELINE: Todd Shaw's criminal record has no followers yet. Be the first one to follow.
Police say Shaw hits and kills 51-year-old Fred Carey and is arrested the following day. This is Shaw's eighth arrest for drunk driving charges. Prosecutor Vince Faris said Shaw had a valid Ohio driver’s license when he hit Carey.
Shaw pleads guilty to OVI (second in six), a first-degree misdemeanor -- and loses his license for five years. He’s sentenced to 180 days (160 of which are suspended). He must also pay a $500 fine and successfully complete OVI court. “The defendant will not operate a motor vehicle unless it is equipped with an ignition Interlock system for a period of 55 months,” documents state.
The court determines Shaw may be eligible to participate in the OVI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated) Court Program, which consists of a minimum of seven months of treatment.
Judge Shriver signs off on a petition to allow Shaw “24-hour unrestricted” driving privileges after ignition Interlock device is reinstalled on his vehicle.
Shaw is arrested for his seventh drunken driving charge. This charge was designated an OVI (operating a vehicle under the influence) rather than a DUI(driving under the influence) because the statute was changed to OVI in 2005. Shaw was also charged with marijuana and paraphernalia possession after he is pulled over for swerving across the center line. His BAC level was 0.26, records show.
Shaw's marijuana charges are amended to Disorderly Conduct, a fourth-degree misdemeanor. He is fined $200.

Shaw's first interlock report has several red flags. Interlock Operations Manager Leo Rycraw wrote: "A very stiff warning is in order." The report reveals Shaw failed his Interlock tests 18 times between Jun. 7 and July 11. At one point, records show he blew a BAC as high as 0.055.
Shaw petitions the court to allow him to drive because a license suspension would "seriously affect (his) ability to continue in his employment" at Shaffer Construction in Lindale. Judge Jerry R. McBride agrees and signs off on the petition. Shaw is ordered to drive with a breath alcohol ignition interlock device in his vehicle, which requires him to blow into a device to drive.
