Man accused of having mother lie for him now charged with leaving scene, OWI PDF Print E-mail

A man who allegedly asked his mother toile about his involvement with a one-vehicle accident on July 4 is now charged with leaving the scene of a property damage accident and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI).

Shawn M. Nichols, 37, allegedly was the driver of a white Ford Explorer which crashed on North Main Street Road south of the Flat Creek Bridge, according to the probable cause affidavit written by Deputy John Hartman.

The deputy said he was dispatched at 9:21 p.m. on the holiday to go investigate the accident. The Explorer had apparently rolled several times, coming to rest in a cornfield after striking and breaking a Duke Energy-owned utility pole.

Initially, the woman at the scene said the vehicle belonged to her son but she had been driving it at the time of the accident.

As the officer and she continued to talk, Deputy Hartman said she admitted Nichols had been driving. She said she was brought to the scene to stay by the vehicle, while her son was driven away.

Nichols was located, the officer said in his affidavit and brought back to the scene. There, he allegedly admitted drinking at a family party before driving. When Nichols took a field sobriety test around 10 p.m., he failed, the officer said. At 10:08 p.m., a portable breathalyzer test was administered. He allegedly failed that too.

Nichols was taken into custody. According to documents, he has three previous convictions for OWI, one in Florida in 2016, one in Scott County in 2010 and one in Washington County in 2009.

The charges originally filed as misdemeanors, Nichols’ legal history allowed the Prosecutor’s Office to file a Notice of Prior Offense, a Level 6 felony, thus increasing the penalties should Nichols be convicted.

His jury trial is scheduled October 2 in Scott Circuit Court. After his bail was reduced from $15,000 by corporate surety bond or $1,500 cash to $10,000/$1,000, a cash bond was filed July 6 for his release.



Retired Scottsburg businessman, former councilman Ray Zollman dies at 86 PDF Print E-mail

He knew lots of people.

Ray Zollman, 86, Scottsburg, was a retired businessman and city councilman who never met a stranger, just someone he didn’t know. Yet.

Ray died on Thursday, July 13, at Baptist Hospital East in Louisville, Ky., after a brief illness.

Born in Scottsburg in 1930 to the late Hayden Zollman Sr. and Ruth Fitch Zollman-Ross, Ray and his late identical twin brother Roy weren’t averse to taking each other’s place when needed. They developed the art of switching places in school. The practice continued when they began working, and both went to work as young teens. One brother might work three days of the week and the other two; then, the next week, they’d switch.

The days where one was not working were spent working for someone else. That worked fine until one brother made a farmer for whom the other brother had mowed the day before mighty suspicious when he couldn’t recall where “he” had left the mower.

The Zollman twins had the odd job market cornered, so to speak, in the small town which was Scottsburg. They even dated the same gal at the same time, though neither knew it at the time!

Ray married his sweetheart Shirley M. Walters in 1951, and the couple had two sons, Danny and Rick. Ray managed the old Western Auto Store that was located on the northwest corner of Wardell and South Main Streets. He then owned and operated the old Gambles store. It had been along West McClain Avenue west of Collins Funeral Home.

After he closed the Gambles store, Ray worked for Gibson Heating and Air Conditioning Company along U.S. Highway 31 North before finally retiring and enjoying a less demanding lifestyle with Shirley.

Through the years, Ray also became interested in working for his hometown. He served for years as a Democrat Party precinct committeeman for Vienna 4 as well as eight years as a member of the City Council. After he was defeated in a spring primary, he continued serving his community as a member of the Scottsburg Board of Works and Public Safety. It was only in recent months, as his health began to decline, that he failed to attend these business meetings on a regular basis.

The absence of this kind man who was dedicated to his home town was noted by his colleagues. Regardless of politics, everyone liked Ray, and he certainly enjoyed talking to all who came to the meetings.

Ray outlived Shirley by nearly two years, and his parents, Roy and a third brother, Hayden Jr., died some years ago. He is survived by his sons and their spouses as well as his two sisters, three granddaughters and a great-granddaughter.

A simple graveside service was conducted at Scottsburg Cemetery on Monday morning, July 17. Phil LaMaster officiated. Staff of the Collins Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

Memorial gifts may be arranged through the funeral home to benefit the Scottsburg city parks through the Scott County Community Foundation.
