SHELBY, OH -  Shelby Law Director Gordon Eyster will not receive any jail time for his involvement in a September 22 motorcycle accident involving another vehicle.

In an evidence suppression hearing held Tuesday in Shelby Municipal Court, Eyster reached a plea agreement with the state, where he pled no contest to four misdemeanor charges with an OVI charge being dropped.

Acting Judge Michael McNulty handed Eyster a $250 fine and court costs and 60 days jail time suspended, along with suspending his driver's license for 180 days on a charge of hit/skip, leaving the scene of an accident.

The judge also gave Eyster a $100 fine with court costs for failure to control, but no fines for having no motorcycle license and for not wearing a helmet.

The September 22 crash involved Eyster driving a motorcycle which struck the bumper of a car. He was seriously injured and left the scene to seek treatment and did not talk with any law enforcement agency, nor did the car's driver.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol investigated the incident and requested a toxicology report from OhioHealth Shelby Hospital, which read .105, over the legal blood alcohol limit of .080.

Assistant Ohio Attorney General Micha Ault presented the case for the state with Shelby attorney Neil McKown representing Eyster.
