ND coach to fight OVWI charge in court

ELNORA — A North Daviess administrator,athletic director and coach is facing multiple charges in connection with an arrest last fall in Johnson County.

Brent Dalrymple, 44, head boys basketball coach and assistant principal at North Daviess High School, is facing charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (a class C misdemeanor), operating a vehicle with alcohol concentration equivalent to at least .08 percent but less than .15 percent (a class C misdemeanor), operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person (a class A misdemeanor), and disregarding a lighted signal exhibiting colored lights (a class C infraction).

A field sobriety test was administered and the deputy claims Dalrymple flunked it. He was later taken to the Johnson County jail and administered a breath test. Dalrymple measured a .09 and was placed under arrest without incident.

The arrest was brought to the attention of the Times Herald by an anonymous letter. At least two were sent to the newspaper and North Daviess School Superintendent Robert Bell says he is aware of the same letter being sent to at least three school board members. Even though the letter showed the information was printed off of a Johnson County newspaper website on Dec. 31, 2013, the letters did not arrive to their various recipients until this week.

According to documents in Franklin City Court, Dalrymple was stopped just after midnight on Oct. 20, 2013, in a black GMC Terrain for disregarding a traffic signal at County Line Road and SR 37.

He was later released on $1,000 bond and entered a not guilty plea in Franklin City Court on Nov. 26, 2013. The matter is set for a bench trial on April 9, 2014.

“Mr. Dalrymple properly notified me when this situation occurred,” said Bell. “We are now waiting for the legal process to conclude.”

The Times Herald contacted Dalrymple offering him the opportunity to comment. “On the advice of counsel, I have no comment,” he replied.
