HELENA – Helena Capital football coach Kyle Mihelish is challenging his recent arrest for allegedly driving under the influence.
Mihelish was arrested during the early morning hours of Dec. 9 by a Helena police officer. The report from the daily police log says Mihelish was stopped just before midnight on Dec. 8, and an investigation resulted in him being arrested for a misdemeanor first offense DUI and failure to obey traffic signs.
Mihelish’s lawyer, Michael McLean, filed a motion in District Court on Tuesday asking Judge Mike Menahan to overturn the seizure and suspension of Mihelish’s driver’s license. In the filing, McLean says the officer who arrested Mihelish did not have reasonable suspicion or probable cause to pull his client over on suspicion of DUI.
Mihelish, who was named the head coach at Capital in 2015, guided the Bruins to a 7-5 record and semifinal berth in the Class AA football playoffs this past season.
