Buchanan County Prosecuting Attorney Dwight Scroggins filed one class-B misdemeanor count of DWI against 44-year-old Sergeant Jill Voltmer, after she allegedly drove a department vehicle into a parked car and then left the scene. A witness provided a tag number, and Voltmer was pulled over a short distance away. Two officers reported she smelled of alcohol, and officials say she later failed a field sobriety test. A hearing is scheduled next week at which a judge is expected to name a special prosecutor. Meanwhile, Sergeant Voltmer is on administrative duty pending an internal investigation.
