4 DUI Arrests In 5 Years For Man Accused In Death Of Lexington Attorney

Posted: Updated:
Court documents reveal that the man accused of driving drunk and killing a Lexington attorney over the weekend in Scott County has been arrested at least three other times in the last five years on alcohol-related charges.

Georgetown Police said Odilon Paz-Salvador, 29, was behind the wheel of a vehicle that hit Mark Hinkel on Saturday, as Hinkel was riding in the Horsey Hundred on Lemons Mill Road. Paz-Salvador is charged with murder, wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of a fatal accident, and failure to render aid. He was charged with DUI after officers said they found beer inside of the vehicle and the suspect confessed to smoking marijuana.

LEX 18 found that Paz-Salvador was charged with DUI back in July 2010, when Georgetown Police said he had a blood alcohol level of 0.3, nearly four times the legal limit. Court records show that charge was amended to alcohol intoxication because Paz-Salvador "could not be proven to be the driver of the car."

In April 2011, Paz-Salvador was again pulled over in Scott County. That time, investigators said he had a blood alcohol level of 0.184. He pleaded guilty to DUI in that case.

Paz-Salvador also pleaded guilty to a DUI from June 2013 when Lexington Police pulled him over on New Circle Road.

Checking back through five years of records, officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet told LEX 18 there is no record of a driver's license in Paz-Salvador's name.

A spokesperson for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the 29-year-old is currently in the deportation process and his case is pending in federal immigration court.

LEX 18 reached out to Paz-Salvador in the Scott County Detention Center. He did not want to share his side of the story.
