Police Chief Arrested for DWI Now Out on $5000 PR Bond
David Board, Chief of Police for Bastrop, Texas, was driving along Ed Bluestein Blvd. in Austin around 9:45 pm this past Monday night when some of his law enforcement brethren pulled him over — and busted him for driving drunk.
That’s right: the Austin cops gave no special favors. The Police Chief was busted.
Chief Board was charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and later released on a $5000 Personal Recognizance Bond. He’s not on the job, however: the City Manager has told the media that the Assistant Chief will be handling those job duties while Chief Board deals with some things.
Right on the Heels of the State-Wide 2010 Labor Day DWI Enforcement Initiative (August 20 – September 6)
Interesting that the Bastrop Police Chief was arrested for drunk driving within days of the beginning of this year’s state-wide DWI enforcement grant program, which begins this Friday (August 20, 2010) and continues over the Labor Day holiday ending Monday, September 6th, 2010. During this block of time, police officers across the state will be focusing upon stopping potential drunk drivers — and over the Labor Day weekend, we’ll have another of those state-wide “No Refusal” campaigns. (“Where the police “don’t take ‘no’ for an answer.”)
