Hayride driver pleads no contest to driving while impaired

NOVI, Mich. (WXYZ) - The man accused of driving a hayride tractor and flipping it over made a deal in court today.

Adam Forehand was charged with reckless driving, but pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of driving while impaired. He appeared in front of Judge Robert Bondy in 52-1 District Court in Novi on Thursday.

His blood alcohol level was at .06, which is below the legal limit to drive, when he flipped a hayride tractor at Camp Dearborn last fall.

Under the deal, Forehand will have a restricted drivers license for 90 days.

At least five people were hospitalized after the accident. One of those victims tells Action News she and others plan to file civil lawsuits against forehand.
