ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – An Albuquerque, N.M., lawyer known for suing drunken drivers has been convicted of driving while impaired.
Ron Bell was found guilty of three counts Tuesday, including DWI, speeding and failure to maintain a traffic lane.
Bell was stopped in June 2010 by an off-duty Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputy. Bell failed some field sobriety tests and a toxicology report showed he had amphetamine in his system.
Bell takes Adderall, which contains amphetamine, for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
A toxicology expert testified that the level in Bell’s system was enough to impair a normal person’s driving. Bell’s attorney argued there was no evidence Bell was incapable of driving.
Bell was ordered to pay a fine and perform community service. He also must attend DWI school and use an interlock ignition device for one year.
