Scott Rosenblum involved in accident, arrested for DWI

BRENTWOOD, Mo. – Well-known defense attorney Scott Rosenblum was arrested overnight after he was involved in a suspected drunk driving accident.

Maj. James McIntyre with the Brentwood Police Department says Rosenblum was driving a 2013 Bentley south near the 1800 block of South McKnight around 12:15 a.m. Tuesday when he hit a 2011 Toyota Tundra driving northbound.

McIntyre says the investigation indicates Rosenblum crossed the center line and struck the Tundra head-on. He says both vehicles sustained significant damage.

According to McIntyre, Rosenblum was arrested and taken to the Brentwood Police Department and issued a summons for careless and imprudent driving and driving while intoxicated.

Hours before his arrest, Rosenblum's client, 45-year-old Daniel Hughes, was acquitted of molesting a 9-year-old girl at the Ritz-Carlton in March 2011.

NewsChannel 5 has contacted Rosenblum's office, and received the following statement from his attorney, John P. Rogers:

"My Law Partner Scott Rosenblum was involved in an automobile accident at midnight last night.

"Neither party suffered any injury.

"Scott had just successfully acquitted Mr. Hughes after a jury trial that lasted well over a week. The hours of preparation and exhaustion that followed were certainly the main factors contributing to the accident.

"John P. Rogers, Attorney for Scott Rosenblum"
