Sam Donaldson to Fight DUI Charge

Did anyone expect anything different?


Former ABC News Correspondent Sam Donaldson who made a career of yelling at the Presidents, is going to fight his DUI charge in court.

Donaldson was arrested in December and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

He has pleaded not guilty and requested a nonjury trial in the Sussex County Court of Common Pleas, where a Georgetown attorney familiar with DUI cases will represent him.

Donaldson was stopped by Lewes police while driving back on December 1st.

After standard field sobriety tests, he was arrested and charged, Lewes police said. Lewes Police Chief Jeffrey Horvath said at the time that the arresting officer did not recognize Donaldson as a public figure, and that Donaldson was “polite and cooperative.”

Eric Mooney, a longtime criminal defense lawyer who is representing Donaldson, filed motions seeking information on prosecutors’ evidence. Mooney did not return a call for comment.
