Police Chief's DUI Case Goes to Jury

Tuscumbia, AL Police Chief, Tony Logan, was charged with DUI in 2009 after he crashed his patrol car into his own mailbox at his Florence home in 2009, according to reports from The Huntsville Times. The Chief of Police was convicted at Florence City Court and appealed his case to the Circuit Court. Due to the amount of publicity in the case, the case was transferred to an Etowah County Circuit Court.

The Florence police were able to obtain a search warrant to collect a blood sample from Logan. That sample indicated that Logan's blood alcohol level was .27, over three times the Alabama legal limit of 0.08. Now, it is up to an Etowah County jury to decide Logan's fate.

Driving under the influence is a crime taken very seriously in Alabama, and as the article indicated no one is beyond the reach of the long arm of the law, not even police chiefs. If you or someone you know has been charged with DUI, tell them they need to hire and experienced DUI criminal defense attorney.
