Jeffrey Stalhood of Hillsdale, Mich., was arrested on a felony warrant for two counts of oper­ating a vehicle while intox­i­cated causing death, two counts of reckless driving causing death, and two counts of driving with a sus­pended license causing death.

Stalhood, age 45, is the alleged driver in an accident that caused two deaths in Sep­tember.  Alcohol and high speeds are pos­sibly involved.

According to Hillsdale County Sheriff Stan Bur­chardt, Stalhood was charged with manslaughter and neg­ligent homicide.  The case will be inves­ti­gated by the Michigan State Police.

Stalhood turned himself in to the Hillsdale police after getting a lawyer that may have con­vinced him to turn himself in on his war­rants.

A bond of $210,000 was allowed but not posted for Stalhood’s release.
