Michigan Chief of Police Arrested for DUI

Posted By Thomas V. Wallin || 10-Aug-2011

A West Michigan Chief of Police was arrested last week for driving under the influence and has since been suspended from his duties as the Chief of Police.

According the WWMT.com, Mark Sheldon was driving when officers spotted his pickup truck crossing the center line.   Once pulled over, Sheldon was required to perform several DUI field sobriety tests such as the walking heel to heel in a straight line test, which he failed.   Sheldon was then given the breathalyzer test which showed that his blood alcohol level was at .020, well above the legal limit. Sheldon will be charged under the new state of Michigan "super drunk" law for first time offenders who are over a .07 blood alcohol level.
