February 29, 2012

MATTHEW DAVID MELLEN [#233350], 46, of San Mateo was suspended for one year, stayed, placed on one year of probation with a 60-day actual suspension and he was ordered to take the MPRE. If the actual suspension exceeds 90 days, he must comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court. The order took effect Feb. 29, 2012.

After crashing his car into a median and leaving the scene with his then-wife, Mellen told a police officer he wasn’t wearing his glasses but admitted he’d been drinking. His blood alcohol content was .12 percent. He pleaded no contest to one count but chose to go to trial later, where he and his wife both testified that she had been driving. The jury convicted him of driving under the influence and DUI with a prior.

He stipulated to the conviction and to acting with gross negligence by suggesting his wife was driving.
