Toxicology report confirms suspended Edgewood officer had drugs in blood

Edgwood officer's initial court hearing is May 19

(Continued)

Foutch has already been placed on administrative leave without pay by the Edgewood Town Council, and faces serious felony charges in connection with the incident, including driving while intoxicated causing death, driving while intoxicated causing serious injury, reckless homicide and criminal recklessness. Prosecutors are also pursuing a sentence-enhancing charge of habitual substance offender in the case.

Foutch, a career third-shift officer, faces an initial hearing in court on May 19. He was making $41,972.32 a year.

Attempts to reach Foutch have been unsuccessful, and Foutch’s family has declined to comment on the story. The family of Erica Manis, Foutch’s girlfriend and passenger the day of the accident, issued a statement apologizing to the Sperry family for the accident, but declined to comment further on the case.
