According to a Johnson County Sheriff's Office complaint, a police official made a traffic stop on a vehicle because of suspicion of OWI. Romont admitted to having half of a 40-ounce beer, smelled heavily of alcohol, had slow, deliberate slurred speech, and red watery eyes.

Romont was charged with OWI on Nov. 5, 2008 and Oct. 28, 2009, the complaint said.

Third-offense OWI is a Class-D felony.
