38-year-old Jeremy Morphis told police he consumed “two beers” before crashing his vehicle Sunday night with a passenger, Heather Knalls, inside. Witnesses say he was weaving and suddenly swerved to the left, crashing into the woods. Morphis was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. Knalls, however, suffered a dislocated and fractured hip from the crash. He is charged with DUI and felony vehicular assault. In August, Judge Jennifer Smith gave Morphis a deferred judgment with no conviction for placing a hidden camera in the bathroom of his home to record an underage relative for sexual gratification.
