The CEO of Dippin’ Dots faces DUI charges after crashing his vehicle into two homes in Edmond, Oklahoma. While on routine patrol, an Edmond police officer noted a powerline down across the roadway. The officer continued to investigate before discovering that a white car had crashed into a house on North Broadway. The full extent of the property damage is as follows: two houses, a power pole and an iron fence. Authorities later identified the responsible driver as 38 year old Scott Stephen Fischer, better known as the CEO of ice cream company Dippin’ Dots. The collision caused Fischer to be pinned in his vehicle against the house. Authorities were eventually able to extricate Fischer.
Following his arrest for DUI, Fischer admitted to drinking “a few” mixed drinks at a local charity event. While in police custody, Fischer repeatedly gave his thanks to the officers and told them he understood that they were “just doing their job.” Fischer suffered no injuries in the crash. In a written statement, Dippin’ Dots again expressed its appreciation for police officer and first responders who were working on behalf of Mr. Fischer at the accident scene.
