DeKalb County Commissioner Denies Driving Drunk in Georgia

On the night of July 12, 2012, Stan Winston, a DeKalb County Commissioner denies driving drunk, but his questionable behavior has resulted in quite the tangled web of accusations and even an internal affairs investigation. On that night, another off duty police officer, O.B. Parker witnessed Winston getting upset with a woman at the bar because he thought she stole his wallet. Parker could tell by Watson’s behavior that he was intoxicated and suggested he find someone to drive him home, but Watson apparently got in his car and left anyway.

However, only moments later, Watson returned to the parking lot, got out of his vehicle and said he would find someone to drive him home. According to reports, there were two Dekalb County officers on duty at the scene when the incident occurred who did not arrest Watson for DUI, which Internal Affairs is investigating. In response to why Watson was allowed to leave in the first place Officer Parker stated, “Due to circumstances beyond my control, Mr. Watson was allowed to have someone take him home and leave his vehicle parked in the parking lot of the club.” Dekalb County Commissioner Watson initially denied being drunk on that night, saying, “I wasn’t drunk. I wasn’t charged with anything. Have a great day.” Watson has not responded for comment since then.
