Bond Set At $25,000 For Mayville Man Charged With His Seventh OWI Offense

(Mayville) Cash bond was set at $25,000 for a Mayville man charged with his 7th OWI offense. Gregory Cundy made his initial appearance in court this week on charges stemming from the July 2 incident. According to the criminal complaint, a Mayville Police Officer responded to the area of Allen Street near South Main Street shortly after 9:30pm. A witness observed a vehicle back up into a parked car then drive off. The person also saw the vehicles license plate which was reportedly registered to Cundy. When police questioned Cundy, he denied the accusations and said he was at home sleeping at the time of the accident. During their interactions, officers could reportedly smell a strong odor of intoxicants, slurred speech and that Cundy’s eyes were bloodshot. Cundy was transported back to the scene of the crime where the witness allegedly identified him as the perpetrator. The 55-year-old refused to take Standardized Field Sobriety Test’s or submit to a blood draw but a preliminary breath test taken at the jail reportedly returned a reading of point-one-four-seven (.147). Cundy has OWI offenses dating back to 1991 and as recent as 2005. If convicted, Cundy faces no more than 12-and-a-half years in prison. A judge will decide next week if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
