INDIANAPOLIS– A former chief of the Fishers Police Department pleaded guilty to driving drunk Tuesday.

Mitchell Thompson was sentenced to one year of probation for operating a vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person.

This stems from a July 2018 three-vehicle crash in the intersection of 96th Street and Keystone Avenue. Police said Thompson got behind the wheel, causing the crash.

After the incident, Thompson resigned from the Fishers Police Department.

As part of his probation he must also submit to random drug and alcohol testing, along with not drinking alcohol for one year. 

Thompson’s license was also suspended for 90 days, retroactive back to Aug. 1. His license was restored on Oct. 16.
