Former state Rep. Elmer charged with misdemeanor DUI

Posted online

Kevin Elmer, who previously served as a state representative from Nixa, has been charged with a misdemeanor in Christian County.

Elmer, who currently works as an administrative law judge for the Missouri Department of Labor, in July was pulled over and then arrested in Nixa for suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to a probable cause statement.

The Nixa police officer who wrote the statement indicated Elmer insulted him during blood-alcohol tests.

Elmer's arraignment is scheduled Jan. 15.

"Kevin Elmer is a good man with no prior criminal record. He truly regrets his past actions and sincerely apologizes to the community and his family," said Joe Passanise, Elmer's attorney, in a statement to the Springfield News-Leader.
