BUTTE, Mont. – Robbie Knievel was arrested on suspicion of felony driving under the influence in Butte, Montana, the town his daredevil father Evel Knievel helped make famous.
Police tell The Montana Standard (http://bit.ly/1PiWnOv) that Knievel was speeding in a sport utility vehicle Tuesday evening when he rear-ended a Honda, causing a chain-reaction crash involving two other vehicles. No one was injured.
Butte-Silver Bow Undersheriff George Skuletich says Knievel drove off but was found about a block away. He refused a breath test and so officers got a search warrant to take a blood sample.
Knievel, who is 52, was booked into jail, where he remained Wednesday morning pending an initial appearance in Justice Court.
Skuletich says Knievel invoked his rights to an attorney but didn't give officers a name.
