The Marion County Prosecutor's Office will ask that Allen Circuit Judge Thomas Felts' driver's license be suspended following the results of a blood test. The prosecutor's office received the results this morning, which showed Judge Felts' blood alcohol level was 0.19 when he was tested July 18.

Matthew Symons, spokesperson for the Marion County Prosecutor's Office, said the office would file a motion to suspend Judge Felts' license today. It is up to the trial court judge whether or not the license is suspended immediately or following a hearing, he said.

Judge Felts was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated, a Class A misdemeanor, and public intoxication, a Class B misdemeanor, following a traffic stop in Indianapolis. The judge's attorney, James Voyles, entered a not-guilty plea on the judge's behalf at a July 23 hearing in Marion Superior Court. A pre-trial hearing is set for Aug. 21.
