Man Acquitted in Las Vegas Death Arrested for DUI
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana man acquitted in the death of a Las Vegas casino executive, but convicted of trying to steal the man’s silver, has been arrested for driving under the influence in Idaho.
An Idaho State Police officer pulled over 47-year-old Rick Tabish of Missoula on Interstate 84 in Boise early Saturday after clocking him driving 75 mph in a 55 mph zone and failing to stay in his lane. Officials say his blood-alcohol level was 0.087, just above the legal limit of 0.08.
Tabish and co-defendant Sandra Murphy were convicted of killing 55-year-old Ted Binion in 1998. They were acquitted in a 2004 retrial, but Tabish was convicted of trying to steal Binion’s silver stash.
Tabish was released on parole in May 2010.
His parole was scheduled to end in March 2011.
