On 09/19/13 Robert Butler, 61 of Metropolis, was involved in a traffic crash at the intersection of Unity School Rd. and Mt. Sterling Rd. Butler showed signs of being under the Influence. A preliminary breath test showed mixed results. The Sheriff's Department recently became aware of a pill called Alcopal that distorts the results of breath tests that is being illegally sold in Massac County. Butler was taken for Blood and Urine testing. Butler was charged with DUI and released. The Alcopal pill does temporarily distort the results of breath tests but does not distort blood and urine. Deputies have been trained on how to recognize the signs of use of the Alcopal pill.
