MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (AP) —
An Indiana pathologist who was hauling tellurian organ samples in his pickup lorry when he was arrested on inebriated pushing charges has pleaded guilty.
Seventy-five-year-old Elmo A. Griggs was condemned final week to a year of trial in Morgan County after pleading guilty to one count of handling a car while intoxicated. A second count was dismissed.
The Indianapolis Star reports Griggs has worked as an Indiana pathologist for some-more than a decade, providing services to a Marion County and Tippecanoe County coroner’s offices.
He was arrested Sept. 12 after he was speckled pushing erratically along Indiana 67 in Morgan County about 10 miles (16 kilometers) southwest of Indianapolis.
A vodka bottle and totes containing slides and organ samples from Griggs’ private pathology cases were found in his truck.
