A Grand Island official arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after a hit-and-run crash last month has entered a written plea of not guilty.
51-year-old Jaye Monter, the finance director in Grand Island, was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Hall County Court.
Monter instead opted for a written plea of not guilty while also requesting a jury trial.
Monter was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving following a hit and run accident on Highway 2 on June 7.
A Hall County Sheriff's Deputy witnessed the accident. He says Monter failed to stop after he pulled her over.
Monter's pre-trial hearing is scheduled for September 19.
