CPD: Collision result of impaired driving

By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

On Friday afternoon, April 29, officers were dispatched to a two vehicle collision on Campbellsville Street near the intersection of Fairground Street. Upon arrival, witnesses stated to officers that they had been behind one vehicle involved, a white Chevy Traverse, on Highway 55, and stated it had been repeatedly all over the road and driving recklessly before the accident coming into town.

Officers were able to review video from a local business on Campbellsville Street and observed the Traverse veer into the southbound lane before making contact with a private bus from Somerset Christian School, which was occupied by nine juveniles as well as the driver.

Officers performed onsite field sobriety tests on male subject who was operating the Traverse. They also located a substance believed to be methamphetamine on the male's person. In addition, the subject had seven active warrants from Pulaski and Lincoln Counties.

Paul Schilling, 45, of Somerset, was taken into custody and is facing multiple traffic charges as well as 10 counts of wanton endangerment first degree, possession of methamphetamine 2nd offense, operating on a suspended operators license, and DUI 2nd with aggravated circumstance.

Officer Joey Keith was the arresting Officer. He was assisted on scene by Officer Josh Durbin.
