Gold Medal Winter in '68 Olympics pleads to California DUI

California DUI attorney news

San Luis Obispo, California. Bill Toomey, 69, competed in the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City and won gold in the decathlon. Toomey entered the spotlight the past week by entering a plea of no contest to California DUI - Driving Under the Influence.

The California DUI court will sentence Toomey on April 22, but he is expected to receive the following California DUI punishment:

2 days of California DUI jail
3 years California DUI probation
$1,726.00 of California DUI fines
attend California DUI alcohol class
pay California DUI restitution

Toomey crashed his Mercedes into parked cars on May 24, 2007. His blood alcohol level was 0.04 which is under California’s DUI legal limit of 0.08. However, Toomey’s California DUI blood results also yielded evidence of pain killers and a sleeping aide. Alcohol, sleep medication and pain killers do not mix well, and can impair your ability to drive, California DUI lawyers warn.
