Lt. William H. Smith, 43, was booked into the Chippewa County Jail at 4:51 a.m. Saturday, confirmed Undersheriff Mike Bitnar this morning. Smith was booked under an "OWI" charge which is operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, said Bitnar.
No word on him being fired yet. I expect if charges move forward he will be on no more than administrative leave. Since drinking and driving is a perfectly acceptable behavior for a Law Enforcement Officer.
State Sponsored Criminal #375: William H. Smith
Because drinking and driving is only bad when you end up in an accident, never mind experience and history should have taught to know better.
