Former NHP Sergeant Indicted in Fatal DUI Crash

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A dismissed Nevada state trooper has been indicted on charges he was under the influence of marijuana when he
caused a three-vehicle crash that left one person dead and two others hurt.

A judge on Wednesday set arraignment Sept. 11 for Edward Lattin on a felony charge of driving under the influence of a controlled or prohibited substance resulting in death.

Lattin's lawyer, John Watkins, declines comment.

The 46-year-old Lattin was a 20-year NHP veteran and a sergeant in charge of a unit that investigated fatal crashes when he resigned in July.

He faces a mandatory two to 20 years in prison if convicted. He remains free on $50,000 bail.
