Independence man charged with felony driving while revoked after arrest in Saline County

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Ronald J. Pycke, 62, of Independence, is in custody at Saline County Justice Facility on a $5,000 cash or surety bond.

Pycke was charged Saturday, July 4, with class D felony operating a motor vehicle while revoked after he was questioned by Missouri Highway Patrol officers at the scene of a traffic accident in Slater.

Pycke has several prior convictions for alcohol-related offenses. He pleaded guilty to second-degree assault while operating a vehicle while intoxicated, resulting in injury, a class C felony, in March 2003. He was most recently convicted as an "aggravated offender" of class C felony driving while intoxicated in January 2008.

Editor's note: Charges contained in reports provided by law enforcement officials are not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting charges must be presented before a jury, whose duty is to determine if the accused is guilty or not guilty of the charges.
