A Guthrie man is in trouble with the law again. This time the man smashed his truck into the back of a Logan County Sheriff Tahoe. The latest arrest is his third in three years.

County DeputyThe Guthrie Police Department responded to the 600 block of E. Harrison on Thursday, Oct. 3 to find a two-vehicle accident showing a white Chevrolet pickup truck smashed into the back side of a brand new Sheriff’s Department Tahoe.

The deputy and driver did not report any injuries at the scene. Although, the deputy appeared to be shaken from the incident.

The first officer on the scene noticed the driver (still in his truck) was moving slow and his speech was slur. Another officer was called to the scene to perform a field sobriety test.

Following the test, Cody James Lynch, 29, was arrested for driving under the influence. Lynch was transported to a local hospital where he agreed to take a blood test. Those results are not known at this time.

After a search of Lynch’s truck, a silver smoking pipe was spotted in the console and the contents in the pipe tested positive for THC — generally associated with marijuana.

County DeputyLynch was taken into custody and is being charged with four counts, including a felony for driving a motor vehicle while under the influence for a second and subsequent time, possession of a controlled dangerous drug and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

In May of 2012, Lynch was charged with physical control of a vehicle while under the influence for a second and subsequent time, possession of a dangerous substance and driving with license canceled. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and has been continued for a court pretrial.

In March of 2011, Lynch pleaded guilty to four counts, including aggravated driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

Lynch posted a $5,000 bond and is expected to be back in court on Nov. 12 at 9 a.m.
