DWI History of Man Accused in Winston-Salem Multi-Car Hit

New information has emerged tonight about the man alleged to have collided with at least twelve cars in Winston-Salem. It appears that Mitchell Davis, the accused, has a history of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). As reported by Kara Peters who scoured court documents, Davis has past DWI convictions, once in 2019 in Forsyth County and again in 2020 in Stokes County. His most recent DWI charge, however, occurred this past Saturday when he allegedly hit a dozen cars across several neighborhoods and crashed on Seventh and Broad street.

Davis was described in the police report as having “bloodshot, glassy eyes,” appearing unsteady, and smelling of alcohol. Fortunately, the incident did not lead to any injuries. Davis was also reportedly unconscious when police obtained blood samples to determine his blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The results of this test are still pending.

In connection with the Saturday crash, Davis faces several charges, including misdemeanor DWI, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, and possessing an open container of alcohol. He is expected back in court for these charges in March.

We have learned that Davis, already convicted twice for DWI in 2019 in Forsyth county and again in 2020 in Stokes county, is again facing the same charges. WXII reports that he hit a dozen cars in multiple Winston-Salem neighbourhoods during his most recent alleged DWI offense. A police report describes Davis as having “bloodshot glossy eyes, unsteady, an odor of an alcoholic beverage on breath” and being unconscious after the incident. His blood samples were taken for testing and the results are awaited. Davis is due in court on these charges in March.
