A 20-year-old Tennessee man is scheduled for an April 10 hearing on aggravated DUI charges in the September death of a pedestrian following a motorcycle crash in Bloomington.

Drew Tedrick, 20, of Nashville, faces two counts of aggravated driving under the influence causing a death and a single count of cannabis DUI. According to court records, Tedrick’s THC concentration level within two hours of driving was 14.1 nanograms, an amount that exceeds the state’s legal limit of 5 nanograms in the bloodstream.

An additional traffic citation for operating a motor-driven cycle or moped on one wheel also was filed.

Killed in the fatal crash on Sept. 2 was John P. Grisham, 37, of Bloomington, a pedestrian who was hit by a motorcycle allegedly driven by Tedrick near Veterans Parkway and Empire Street.

According to the McLean County Coroner’sOoffice, Grisham suffered blunt force injuries in the crash.

If convicted, Tedrick faces up to 12 years in prison on the aggravated DUI charges; he would be required to serve 85% of the sentence.

Tedrick remains free on $20,000 bond he posted in December to be released from the McLean County jail.
