Election Monitor in Montana Pleads Guilty to Drunken Driving

Ognjen Domuz of Bosnia is part of an international mission to observe midterm elections

HELENA — Montana officials say a Bosnian man in Helena as part of an international mission to observe midterm elections was arrested for drunken driving.

A Helena municipal court official says 30-year-old Ognjen Domuz (AHG’-nyen DOH’-muz) pleaded guilty Monday morning to driving under the influence.

A police officer pulled Domuz over early Saturday morning near downtown Helena.

Domuz was fined $785. He was ordered to be evaluated for chemical dependency and undergo treatment, if necessary.

Domuz is on the list of election observers with the Organization for Cooperation and Security in Europe.

He is one of 36 observers who have been dispersed across the U.S. in teams of two to monitor and report on campaign activities and Election Day procedures.

OSCE officials did not immediately respond to an email for comment.
