    Bench warrant served for alcohol violation while out on bail

    By Kyara Brown,


    MINOT, ND ( KXNET ) — A Minot man may be in more serious trouble after investigators say he violated a court-ordered sobriety program following a serious vehicle crash.

    James Feeley was charged with a DUI and a felony count for a crash that sent a high school student to the hospital in January.

    According to the affidavit, Feeley was driving the wrong way in on Highway-2 when he collided with another vehicle driven by 18-year-old Tyanna Weeks. Weeks sustained several life threatening injuries in the crash.

    Police say Feeley told officers that he drank 12 bottles of liquor and smoked two dabs of marijuana wax before getting behind the wheel.

    Feeley was released on bond — but was required to attend a 24/7 sobriety program.

    However, according to court documents, he failed a breath test twice in March, and failed to appear for another test on May 8th. The bench warrant was served today and Feeley was arrested.

    Feeley was in court for a violation hearing Friday. He also has a pretrial conference set for June 12th.
