LUDINGTON — The drunk driving trial of Michigan State Police Trooper Sammy Seymour has ended as a mistrial due to a hung jury. After deliberating for about 90 minutes, the six jurors came out of the jury room and announced that they could not come to an agreement. At that time, 79th District Court Judge Pete Wadel instructed the jury to return and discuss the case some more. When the jury came back about 40 minutes later, Judge Wadel declared a mistrial.

Being a criminal trial the jury must unanimously decide the verdict.
