MASON CITY – A Mason City woman convicted of drunk driving earlier this year but got a deferred judgement with probation and was then involved in a rollover accident last month is back behind bars.
Allison Jo McGee, age 29 of Mason City, was arrested for drunk driving back in back on February 6, 2016, by Cerro Gordo deputies. After a guilty plea in April, McGee was given a deferred judgement with included payment of $1,431.00 in fines and court fees and one year of probation and a suspended license. So far, she has paid $100.00 on that balance, records show.
Then, on October 23, law enforcement says McGee was the driver of a car that rolled into a creek. Cerro Gordo deputies responded to a collision just north of the intersection of 275th Street and Fir Avenue in Cerro Gordo County. Upon arrival, deputies found a passenger car in the creek on its side. Deputies spoke with the owner, Nicole Kathleen Thoe, age 20 of Ventura. Thoe was the only occupant remaining at the scene. Two other subjects, including the driver, left the scene prior to deputies’ arrival. After an investigation by deputies, McGee was found to have been driving the vehicle and lost control. There was also a third passenger in the vehicle, Brooke Nikole Starbuck, age 19 of Mason City, at the time of the accident. Minor injuries were sustained by all three individuals. Thoe received a broken wrist during the collision.
As a result of that incident, McGee was charged with driving under suspension, driving under suspension (no SR-22 on file) and leaving the scene of a person injury accident.
McGee is due in court November 16 to answer for the charge of driving under suspension. She will also face a probation revocation hearing on December 12. She remains held in the jail on $2,000 bond.
