Hinder Singer Arrested For Drunk Driving
The Jonesboro Sun reports that the lead singer of the rock group HINDER was arrested in Jonesboro, Arkansas on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
Austin John Winkler, 26, of Hermosa Beach, Calif., was arrested by Patrolman Anthony Zaffarano at about 11:30 p.m. Friday after a traffic stop at the intersection of West Matthews Avenue and Crescent Cove. Winkler is scheduled to appear in Craighead County District Court on Jan. 2.
The officer said in his report that he conducted a traffic stop after spotting a silver 2003 Suzuki SUV traveling south on Gee Street with no headlights on.
"I could smell a strong odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle," Zaffarano wrote in his report. "I advised Mr. Winkler for the reason of the stop. The female in the backseat advised the driver (Winkler) to turn the knob to activate the lights instead of just the daytime running lights. Mr. Winkler advised the vehicle was not his. The female in the back seat advised the vehicle belonged to her."
The HINDER frontman allegedly told police that he had two glasses of wine. Winkler later told police that he had four glasses of wine in a four-hour period, according to the report.
