Green’s attorney is cited for DUI

SHARE Green’s attorney is cited for DUI

The attorney for polygamist Tom Green was arrested for investigation of DUI last week.

John Bucher was cited and released Jan. 10 after his vehicle hit the rear of another stopped for traffic near 800 S. State, according to a Salt Lake police report.

Bucher was "obviously intoxicated," the police report states, but he refused to take a Breathalyzer test. The accident caused about $6,000 damage to the other vehicle, but there were no injuries.

He was cited for investigation of DUI, negligent collision, no insurance and driving without required corrective lenses, according to the report.

Bucher represented Green, who is serving a five-year prison sentence after being convicted of bigamy and criminal nonsupport. Earlier this week, the Utah Board of Pardons announced it had delayed Green's first parole hearing for six months because he may soon stand trial on his other charge of child rape.
