The reporter asked consent of Bryan Totter while he was still in Neuro- Trauma ICU while heavily medicated. Bryan was unaware he was charged with a DWI or that he even spoke with a police officer the night of his accident. The DWI charge was dropped due to the fact that his blood alcohol content was under the legal limit. When the officer asked if he had been drinking, Bryan told the officer he did have a drink with dinner. The officer did not ask when he had dinner. He did have a drink with dinner at 4:30. His accident was around 8:00.
