The President and CEO of Dippin’ Dots was arrested following an alleged DUI crash in Edmond in early April.

Edmond Police released dashcam footage of the crash that occurred after midnight on April 8 near Covell Road and N. Broadway.

According to the report, an officer was traveling north on Boulevard Street toward Covell Road when he noticed power lines arcing and saw a power pole had been hit by something. A little further north, the officer found a white BMW crashed against a house at 2500 N. Broadway.

Upon further investigation officers learned the car had gone through fence and collided into two other homes before coming to a stop. Police located the driver, identified as 38-year-old Stephen Scott Fischer, uninjured but pinned inside the car.

Officers spoke with Fischer, who, according to the report, admitted he had drank at least three mixed drinks at the Dancing For A Miracle event that happened at Children’s hospital earlier Saturday night. Fischer is listed as a dancing celebrity at the event.

Fischer was freed by firefighters and told police he did not remember getting into the wreck. According to the report, Fischer told police he lived near 122nd Street and Western Avenue, and thought he was near there.

Fischer was transported from scene to OU Edmond hospital as a precaution. After being checked out and cleared, he was placed under arrest. The report stated that Fischer refused a blood test. After being taken to the Edmond City Jail he refused to sign a notice of revocation of his license and declined to speak with police. He was then booked into jail on one complaint of driving under the influence of alcohol.

A spokesperson for Dippin' Dots released the following statement on this incident:

While it is inappropriate to comment on specific details at this time, we are grateful that Mr. Fischer did not suffer any life-threatening injuries as a result of this single car accident.  He remains most appreciative of the firefighters, first responders, and medical personnel who assisted him.
