Police: Philly woman DUI when she crashed into school van
This man brutally murdered and mutilated my brother. Shelleen Eberhart Despite the sisters pleading, the board released Cook from prison onto lifetime parole supervision in Sedgwick County on Feb. 25, 2015. Now, less than a year after his release, the 60-year-old parolee is suspected of hurting someone again this time a 52-year-old Wichita woman. Cook was driving a 1986 Camaro that hit the womans car from behind while she was stopped at a red light Sunday afternoon on MacArthur at K-42, a Kansas Highway Patrol accident report says. She went to a hospital with an injury that didnt appear to be life-threatening, Master Trooper Aaron McGuire told The Eagle. The woman couldnt be reached for comment Wednesday. Eberhart hopes that Cook will be sent back to prison as a result of the collision and because he was allegedly driving under the influence which would be a violation of his Criminal Law parole rules. Whether he will return to prison, and for how long, remains unclear. After the collision, authorities booked Cook into the Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of aggravated battery, driving under the influence and speeding. He remains in jail on an arrest and detain order from the state. The Kansas Highway Patrol has yet to present its case to prosecutors, and Cook has not been charged, District Attorneys spokesman Dan Dillon said Wednesday. Cook was being held with no bond amount listed on the jails website. Parole officials are in the early stages of the process to determine whether Cooks parole should revoked if it is found that he violated his parole by crashing into the car while under the influence, injuring the woman. A basic requirement for parolees is not to consume drugs or alcohol.
