Man faces prison for second felony DUI

Tribune News Service

Sentencing is Oct. 7 for a 52-year-old Stateline man who faces prison for his second felony drunk driving arrest.

Mickey W. Bagley told District Judge Michael Gibbons on Monday he was arrested following an accident on Kingsbury Grade on May 27, after he had been celebrating his birthday.

He faces up to 15 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Bagley is ineligible for probation or a diversion program. He was sentenced for a prior felony DUI in Lyon County in 2006.

Bagley said he couldn’t remember what happened.

According to a witness, she heard a crash behind her and saw Bagley’s car in a slow vehicle turnout about three-quarters of the way down Kingsbury toward Foothill Road.

The witness said Bagley ran over to the side of the road, pulled down his pants, and relieved himself in front of her.

A charge of indecent exposure was dismissed.

Bagley’s lawyer, Derrick Lopez, said his client’s blood-alcohol content was .241, more than three times the legal limit for driving in Nevada.

“I was driving,” Bagley said. “I was stupid for doing it.”

Gibbons refused to lower Bagley’s $25,000 bail or release him on his own recognizance before sentencing.

If Bagley arranges bail, Gibbons ordered a hearing before he is released.

“You don’t get in this situation unless you have a serious problem,” Gibbons said. “You could endanger the public.”
