Michael Chesney, 28 years of age of Rocky Top, has been indicted by the Campbell County Grand Jury on charges of DUI and Vehicular Homicide. These charges stem from an accident in October that claimed the life of Kristian Leach.
Chesney is the alleged driver of the car that veered off the road and into a utility pole near the Krome Salon. Leach passes away from injuries sustained in the wreck after being airlifted to UT Medical Center.
In the accident report Chesney claimed to ahve fallen asleep at the wheel but denied being under the influence but did admit to being up all night partying and drinking the previous night. Chesney failed every road sobriety test administered by the officers.
