Howard County Attorney David Schroeder filed the charge Monday morning after receiving the lab reports regarding Jay Vavricek’s blood alcohol content following an arrest for drunk driving on March 2. Vavricek was stopped in Howard County after a citizen reported that he was driving erratically.
Prosecutors would not disclose their reason for reducing the charges or the results of Vavricek’s blood alcohol level tests. He was originally charged with Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.
Vavricek is due in court on Wednesday. He faces up to three months in jail, a $500 fine or both. Reckless driving is a Class IIIA misdemeanor.
