MIDDLEBURY — The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department reported early Thursday morning, Nov. 28, that a driver broke his leg when he was ejected from his car after he drove off U.S. 20 about a mile and a half east of Middlebury.

Daniel S. Little of Mishawaka was taken to South Bend Memorial Hospital to be treated for a fractured leg around 3 a.m., according to a report by the sheriff’s department. The 33-year-old man was driving west on U.S. 20 east of C.R. 33 when he left the north edge of the road for an unknown reason. The sheriff’s department reported that Little was “found to be intoxicated pending further investigation.”

A press release indicated that Little was not wearing a seatbelt. His car, a 2008 Chevy Aveo, had extensive damage, according to the sheriff’s department.

No citations were issued, but deputies are still investigating.

Civil rights attorneys said they hope to exonerate the former chairman of a bribery conviction by obtaining unreleased emails from a federal judge reprimanded for sending racist correspondence. Former Montana U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull sentenced Birdinground (“bird-in-ground”) to three years in prison in 2003. The 79-year-old Crow leader had pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks from a car dealership. When Birdinground sought to retract his plea and go to trial, Cebull rejected the request, a decision upheld on appeal. Cebull resigned last year after an investigation into a racist email he sent involving President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Billings Gazette, Larry Mayer)
