Rigging down water transfer after drillout operations concluded.

Witness NameJeff Wilson

Jeff Wilson had suspicion that Jessie Botti, an SES employee, was under the influence of something based on a conversation and observing his actions, so he called the employee's supervisor to determine. The supervisor had reasonable suspicion that he was under the influence and took him for a drug screen. The employee had a BAC of 0.23 (legal limit is 0.08) and was immediately terminated.

Witness Statement

"This morning on Mepco I arrived on location and had a boy from Select approach me and started asking me questions about his work for the day. He didn't seem quite right so I kept an eye on him . He seemed like he was having trouble holding his train of thought. When he would bend over he would lose his balance and have to catch himself.
I contacted Cassey and told him I didn't want to accuse the boy of being under the influence of anything not knowing the boy. I asked Cassey to send someone to location that knew him to just have a conversation with him and get their opinion. Another boy showed up and I explained to him not to ask if he had been doing anything or accuse him of anything but just get him in a truck and talk to him. After 5 min the boy came to me and said that he believed he was under the influence of something and that they were taking him for drug screen. He said the boy was having some difficulty speaking and when he was asked to fill out JSA he couldn't write. The boy left with him and they were meeting Cassey and cassey was taking him for drug screen."
