Hamilton County Young Republicans chief arrested on 3rd drunken driving allegation
Marietto “Mario” Massillamany, an attorney and chairman of the Hamilton County Young Republicans with two prior alcohol-related driving arrests, was arrested again Sunday morning on two charges related to driving while intoxicated.
Massillamany, 36, an attorney at Barnes & Thornburg and former deputy prosecutor in Marion and Hamilton counties, previously was reprimanded by the state Supreme Court after a 2010 drunken driving conviction, his second.
Massillamany was taken into custody on “preliminary charges of OWI: Previous Conviction and OWI: .08 to less than .15 (blood alcohol content).”
Massillamany was taken to Hamilton County Jail and later released on bond.
Massillamany has had two other alcohol-related driving arrests since 2000.
He was arrested for OWI in March 2010 after police saw his vehicle swerving and clocked it traveling at 71 mph in a 40-mph zone on 116th Street in Fishers. He resigned later that week from his post as spokesman for then-Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi.
In December 2010, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve 32 days in the Hamilton County Jail.
That was his second OWI conviction; he also was convicted in 2000 in Marion County.
In May 2011, the Indiana Supreme Court issued Massillamany a public reprimand for the 2010 conviction. The court’s disciplinary orders said Massillamany violated an Indiana Professional Conduct rule.
