According to the indictment, tests revealed his blood alcohol content was over the legal limit at the time of that crash and that he was impaired by drugs. Prosecutors also say marijuana and drug paraphilia were both found in Drue’s car.

Officials say an investigation revealed that Drue was operating his vehicle at a high rate of speed, weaving in and out of all three lanes. Drue made contact with the rear of Stewart’s Ford Explorer, causing both vehicles to crash.

Department of Motor Vehicles records indicate this is not the first time Drue has been involved in a traffic violation.  Over the last 6 years, Drue was charged with speeding 13 times, along with other violations including Failure to Stop tickets and Cell Phone tickets. His License was also suspended 4 times.

We will update you of the finding of this hearing today in Saratoga as the information becomes available.
