Ia I. Falo is charged with a felony count of aggravated DUI after Boise police say he was driving drunk when he crashed a motorcycle into a parked pickup truck in the Bench on Sunday night.
A male passenger on the back of the motorcycle was badly injured in the crash, which is why Falo is charged with a felony DUI. Police reports do not say if Falo or the passenger were wearing helmets.
Boise police were sent to the 3500 block of West Greenbrier Drive around 10 p.m. Sunday after getting a 911 call reporting a motorcycle crash. Police later figured out the 27-year-old Falo was driving the motorcycle when he ran into a pickup truck. Police reports do not indicate if the passenger was thrown from the motorcycle by the force of the impact but did say it appears he was badly injured in the crash. The passenger was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.
Police say officers detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from Falo and said he appeared intoxicated. Police say Falo failed field sobriety tests and registered a .10 blood alcohol content percentage after taking a breath test. The legal bac limit in Idaho is .08.
Falo was booked into the Ada County Jail early Monday morning and was released on bond later in the day. A preliminary hearing on the case is set for July 16.
The crime of felony aggravated DUI is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
