David Vincent Cole, 35, appeared in East Fork Justice Court on Monday where East Fork Justice of the Peace Pro Tempore Paul Gilbert raised his bail to $25,000.

According to court documents, a preliminary breath test revealed Cole had a .120 blood alcohol content.

Maria Pence was appointed to represent him.
