The quick-thinking of Indiana State Trooper David Ploog is credited with saving McKinney's life. Ploog applied a tourniquet to McKinney's leg, which was bleeding profusely when he arrived at the scene before emergency responders were able to get to the scene. Butler recorded a blood alcohol level 0.18, or more than double the legal limit. He faces two felony charges for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and causing serious bodily injury.
