'Mallard Fillmore' Cartoonist Charged with Indiana DUI

The creator of the comic strip Mallard Fillmore, Edward Bruce Tinsley, was arrested in Columbus, Indiana and charged with driving under the influence.

Tinsley was reportedly angry about the Indiana DUI arrest. His blood alcohol content registered 0.14, nearly twice the legal limit. According to the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department it is the 48-year old cartoonist’s second alcohol related arrest in four months. He was charged with general public drunkenness last August.

The politically conservative Mallard Fillmore comic appears in nearly 400 newspapers.

Tinsley posted a $755 bond for the DUI arrest.
