Gwinnett Deputy Wrong Twice Before...

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jul 11, 2010 | 0 Comments

The Gwinnett County deputy that had arrested the Gwinnett County Commission Chairman for DUI had been wrong on two previous arrests.

A review of the deputy's record shows that he was disciplined twice for determining an impaired person sober while working for the Gwinnett County Police Department.  He resigned in 2006 to take a position at the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department.

In 2004, internal affairs investigators determined that the deputy failed to detect that a driver who caused an accident in Gwinnett was impaired.

The deputy arrested the County Commission Chairman for drunken driving on June 28 even though a breathalyzer test found no indication of alcohol in his system. The commissioner was exonerated two days later when a blood test for alcohol came back negative.
