County attorney charged with drunken driving
Updated on: 07.09.13

The attorney representing Brown County was arrested over the weekend in Hamilton County on drunken driving charges.

Shortly before 7:30 a.m. July 7, Marietto “Mario” Massillamany was stopped by a Hamilton County sheriff’s deputy for driving 60 mph in a 35 mph zone in the 5300 block of 96th Street, according to a police report.

An OWI investigation was conducted and Massillamany submitted to a certified blood test. He was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated - previous conviction and operating while intoxicated with a blood-alcohol content between the legal limit of .08 and .15.

Massillamany was booked into the Hamilton County Jail where he later posted bond and was released for a future court date.

Brown County Commissioner Joe Wray said Tuesday that he was aware of the arrest.

The commissioners contracted with Barnes and Thornburg, not Massillamany as an individual attorney, Wray said. Wray is waiting to hear back from the law firm, which was hired earlier this year to replace local attorney Kurt Young, to learn whether or not the county will be assigned a different lawyer.

Massillamany is a former deputy prosecutor for Hamilton and Marion counties and serves as chairman of the Hamilton County Young Republicans.

Massillamany did not immediately return a call or an email seeking comment.
