This Week's DWI/DUI Shorts

Cottageville, South Carolina – Bert Reeves, the mayor of Cottageville, has been charged with driving drunk. He is in critical condition after he ran his truck off the road, knocked down mailboxes and flipped the vehicle several times. He was then thrown from the truck. His defense attorney says the DUI charges should be dropped before Reeve’s August court date.

Houston, Texas – The 17 year old daughter of Houston mayor Bill White has been arrested on suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). Elena White was stopped by a Harris County deputy about a mile from her home for not having her headlights on at 12:15 am. White failed a field sobriety test and refused a Breathalyzer test. Frank Michel, a spokesman for the mayor, said White does have a driver’s license.

Beggs, Oklahoma – Okmulgee County commissioner Ron Ballard has apologized for being arrested for his DUI arrest, adding that he will seek alcohol counseling but won’t resign. Ballard was arrested about 2:15 in the morning after celebrating his victory in a primary election. He has a record of past drinking offenses and says this latest arrest will not impact his job performance and that "the roads are still going to get fixed."

Kendallville, Indiana – Kendallville city councilman and former Noble County sheriff’s deputy Kirby Miller was arrested on a drunk driving charge. Miller (31) was stopped at 12"37 am after an officer noticed several people in the bed of his pick-up truck. The officer saw someone fall off the back of the truck while the vehicle was still moving. As the officer turned around to investigate he saw several more people jump from the truck. The truck continued on several blocks before being stopped.

Miller resigned from the Noble County Sheriff’s Department in 2004 amid allegations of officer misconduct. He said at the time that someone he had arrested had "an ax to grind."
