A Barnes & Thornburg LLP attorney was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of drunken driving in Hamilton County.

Marietto “Mario” V. Massillamany, 36, was pulled over on 96th Street in Hamilton County at around 7:30 a.m. Sunday by Hamilton County sheriff’s deputy Matt Snively. An operating while intoxicated investigation was conducted, and Massillamany was arrested for OWI with a previous conviction, which is a Class D felony, and Class C misdemeanor OWI with a blood alcohol concentration between 0.08 and 0.15, according to information from the sheriff’s office.

Massillamany, of Fishers, was charged with two drunken-driving offenses in March of 2010 while spokesman for the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office. He pleaded guilty to Class A misdemeanor OWI endangering a person, and the second charge of Class A misdemeanor operating a vehicle with an alcohol concentration equivalent to 0.15 or more was dismissed.

Massillamany’s driver’s license was suspended and he was ordered to complete probation and community service as part of his sentence.

He resigned from the prosecutor’s office after the arrest and was publicly reprimanded by the Indiana Supreme Court in May 2011. As part of his discipline, Massillamany executed a monitoring agreement with the Indiana Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program.

Massillamany also is chair of the Hamilton County Young Republicans.

The Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office had not filed charges by IL deadline.

  1. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  2. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  3. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  4. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!

  5. @ Rebecca D Fell, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it gives the family solace and a bit of closure to go to a road side memorial. Those that oppose them probably did not experience the loss of a child or a loved one.
