Affidavit released in case involving death of off-duty WPD officer and son


New details have been released in the case of James Dalrymple. Dalrymple was charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the April deaths of off-duty WPD officer Stacy Woodson and his son Braeden. 

Court documents were released to KSN Friday afternoon. 

On April 27, 2018 Dalrymple was driving a Chevy Silverado in the area of 21st St. N. and 167th St. W. when he crashed into a motorcycle driven by Woodson. Woodson’s son Braeden was a passenger on the motorcycle. 

Stacy Woodson was pronounced dead at the scene and Braeden died two days later from his injuries. 

Court documents show a Sedgwick County Sheriff’s deputy who was dispatched to the scene of the crash began to conduct the incident report when he “detected an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from Dalrymple.”

Dalrymple first told the deputy he had not been drinking, but then said it had been a long time since he had a drink. Court documents show Dalrymple also said he had drank part of a 16 oz. beer around 3:00 p.m. but then said he had a drink at his son’s ball game which was around 6:00 p.m. that day.

In the court documents, the deputy said Dalrymple’s eyes were bloodshot and watery at the time of the accident and that two Budweiser cans were found in the bed of his truck. 

Dalrymple did take a Standardized Field Sobriety Test and based on the results he was determined under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs by the deputy. Dalrymple declined to submit a Preliminary Breath Test and he was arrested. 

His blood was later drawn at the hospital, according to the court documents. After testing, a doctor estimated Dalrymple’s blood alcohol concentration at the time of the collision was ranging from 0.089 to 0.119. 

It was the opinion of the doctor that Dalrymple was intoxicated at the time of the collision, according to the court documents. 

Dalrymple’s next hearing is set for December 13 at 3:30 p.m.
