Wimmer Ready To Put Past Behind Him

HIGH POINT, NC (June 1, 2004) -- Scott Wimmer got his day in court today answering charges for driving under the influence. Wimmer was arrested January 31, 2004 after an accident in High Point, NC.

The court heard Wimmer's case and found him guilty of driving under the influence. It resulted in a level five conviction, the lowest conviction for such charges, where Wimmer will serve 24 hours of community service in a 30-day period and he must also undergo an alcoholic assessment, which he has already completed. Wimmer's conviction will not result in a loss of license. The charges of delay and obstruction against Wimmer's wife, Jody, were dismissed.

Since Wimmer was found guilty, the court returned an automatic appeal, however, Wimmer will resign the appeal in front of Supreme Court and accept the ruling of the courts.

"I respect the decision of the courts," said Wimmer. "I've been very fortunate to have the support of my sponsor, my family and the entire Bill Davis Racing family throughout all of this. I'm eager to put all of this behind me and move forward. My next commitment to putting all of this behind me is to try and help others from making the same mistake that I've made."
