Driver Charged in Deadly Crash Has Three Previous D.U.I.'s

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An Elmore County man charged with reckless murder in the weekend traffic death of an off duty Montgomery police officer had already been convicted of three previous D.U.I.'s and other driving-related offenses.

State court records showed 31-year-old Micah Day of Millbrook was released from the Autauga County Jail in late May after serving a one year sentence for driving under the influence.

Day's previous arrests occurred in May 2004, March 2006 and May 2006.

He was arrested again on Monday by Alabama state troopers in connection with Friday's traffic death of Robert Edward McCrory. Investigators allege Day ran a red light and struck a pickup truck driven by McCrory. Authorities said alcohol was a factor.

Day remains jailed without bond.

    I know Micah Day & can tell you that he had a death wish. He suffered from multiple medical issues such as a colonoscopy bag that resulted from a previous wreck years ago (he was drinking then to) The last Dui was receive leaving my house. I was not a "friend" I only knew him through my brother who had just kicked him out and he showed up here with a fifth of Jack Daniels or Jim Beam can't remember. I took his keys little did I know he had another set under his wipers on the car. 1 block later he was arrested, they let him out the next day. 2 weeks later he showed up at my brothers house drunk. He was taking him to the police station when he got pulled over cause the idiot was hanging out the car. Yep same thing out the next day. They better dig deeper, he had 4 dui's since 2004 not 3. It is so unfair that people like him get by with dui's like a seatbelt ticket. My best friend's husband was killed while on duty by a drunk driver. I say run over them & let them suffer.

    With 3 previous D.W.I. he should be in Prison not out to kill.Well folks, all I can say is to print thesae articles and flood your State Representatives with them,Be more careful when voting some of these kind hearted judges who think that Death by D.W.I. is not a violent crime.As a 3 time victim and speaker on Victim Impact Panels I ask you to check out Remove Intoxicated Drivers web site.contact Doris Aiken and do something about it other than post. Thank you.

    DRINK & DRIVE IS AGAINST THE LAW.NO MATTER HOW MUCH OR WHAT YOU'RE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF. IF YOU KILL SOMEONE IT'S MURDER. MANDATORY PUNISHMENT IS DEFINITLY NEEDED.

    I my opinion, I do not care who you are, common man or political icon, you are human- somebody's father, mother, brother, sister, friend and so on. Anybody that is found guilty of DUI, has an accident while drinking and driving or anything else alcohol or drug related that injures an innocent person should have to send a year in jail- MANDATORY!!!! No early release for good behavior or anything along that nature!! You have choices and when you make the wrong one there are consequences!!

    Hey, I think you ought to post his mug shot, so we know who to avoid on the road. This guy seems to some how keep getting back behind the wheel. He should not be allowed to sit in the front seat of any vehicle for any reason.

    over a year ago, my 15 yo cousin and her best friend was killed by a drunk driver. He also had 3 previous D.U.I.'s. But all he got was manslaughter. He also had weed in his system. I don't think its right how the same deal, has a different outcome. Now, what do ya'll think about that??
