Felder charged with OVIs


A former star for the Georgetown G-Men basketball team has found himself in trouble with the law again.

Adrian-Isaiah Thomas Felder, commonly referred to as Isaiah Felder, has been charged twice with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, both first-degree misdemeanors, and probation violation, according to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office.

According to crash reports from the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Felder was involved in two accidents on Old State Route 68 south of Georgetown in Pleasant Township on the evening of July 4.

Following the second crash, the report states, he allegedly attempted to flee from law enforcement on foot and was eventually arrested by the OSHP. He was taken to Mt. Orab Mercy hospital to treat non-life threatening injuries and then was taken to the Brown County Adult Detention Center, where he was booked and remains as of press time.

Brown County Court of Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler issued a $50,000 bond on Felder for the probation violation and a $26,000 bond for the OVIs, according to court documents.

At approximately 10:56 p.m. on July 4, Felder was allegedly involved in his first accident, on Old S.R. 68 heading southbound at the intersection of Evans Run Road and Graybill Road, according to the crash report.

As a Chrysler PT Cruiser driven by Vernon Brock of Georgetown approached the intersection, the report states Brock allegedly signaled to turn left, slowing down to 10 miles per hour.

According to authorities, as Brock slowed down, Felder and his Chevrolet Suburban SUV allegedly hit the right side of the PT Cruiser and continued driving off the road around Brock, before continuing southbound and not stopping following the crash. Brock reported having a sore neck but did not need medical treatment.

Brock’s car sustained damage to the right rear taillight assembly, the rear bumper, trunk hatch, and right rear quarter panel, according to the crash report.

The crash report states that approximately a mile south on Old S.R. 68, Felder was then allgedly involved in another accident, this time much more serious, though no one sustained serious injuries.

According to the report, at 10:58 p.m., Felder allegedly crossed the median and collided with a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with six passengers. The Silverado spun 180 degrees and was forced off the road, while the collision reportedly hurled Felder off the road on the northbound side onto an embankment.

The Silverado was being driven by Bryan Poole of Georgetown, and Bryan’s wife, Amanda, and four children were in the vehicle, according to the crash report.

Georgetown EMS responded to the scene but did not transport any of the Poole family to a medical facility, according to the crash report.

The Silverado reportedly sustained damage to the the left rear door, quarter panel, wheel, axle, and bed. It also sustained damage to the drive shaft, which came out of the transmission as a result of the impact from Felder’s vehicle, according to the crash report.

Felder’s vehicle, which is registered to his mother, Jacqueline Felder, sustained damage to the left rear door, left rear quarter panel, rear bumper, left rear taillight assembly, and left front wheel, which disconnected from the car, according to the OSHP.

Felder was allegedly not wearing his seat belt, according to the crash report, and suffered an eye injury.

According to the OSHP, after allegedly attempting to escape from the scene on foot, he was eventually apprehended by an OSHP officer and taken to Mt. Orab Mercy for treatment for his injury.

Once he was released from the medical facility, he was taken to the Brown County Jail, where he was booked in the early hours of July 5 and remains incarcerated.

In addition to the two OVIs and the probation violation, Felder has been charged with driving left of center, driving without a seat belt, failing to stop after an accident, and having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle.

It’s not the first time that Felder has been in trouble with the law.

Since 2011, he’s been handed 24 charges from the municipal court on six occasions, and he’s been charged on two occasions by the court of common pleas, according to the courts’ websites.

Felder was a member of the 2007 state title basketball team.
