Transient accused of third offense driving under influence and second offense revocation in York County

YORK – Scott Weller, 39, who is listed as being a transient in York County, has pleaded not guilty to third offense driving under the influence and second offense driving under revocation due to prior DUIs.

His arraignment was held this week in York County District Court.

According to court documents, a deputy with the York County Sheriff’s Department was on regular patrol when he saw a vehicle without license plates which failed to stop at a stop sign. A traffic stop was initiated.

It is alleged Weller got out of the vehicle, despite being commanded to stay inside. And the deputy alleges in the affidavit he could smell alcohol on Weller. The deputy soon found Weller’s driver’s license had been revoked.

Initial testing, according to court documents, indicated his blood alcohol level was allegedly .269, which is more than three times the legal limit.

It was noted in court documents, he had prior convictions of driving under the influence in Douglas and Platte Counties, as well as a prior conviction of driving under revocation in Platte county.

A jury trial has been set for late February, 2024.

He is facing a Class 3A felony and a Class 4 felony.
