A Guilty Plea In Pontiac Cop's Death

A South Carolina man has pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and aggravated drunk driving in the death last year of a Pontiac police officer.  Jason Collins of West Columbia was at the wheel October 30th when his vehicle hit the police SUV of 29-year-old officer Casey Kohlmeier as it was parked in the median of I-55 near Pontiac.  Collins fell asleep at the wheel after a night of drinking, waking up just before the crash.  Kohlmeier's parents have filed a civil suit against Collins, his employer and the bar where he'd been drinking.
