William H. Smith, 43, was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) – a 93-day misdemeanor – after he crashed his vehicle on July 7, 2012, in Chippewa County.
According to test results, Smith’s blood alcohol content was .13 at the time of his arrest compared to the .08 drunk driving standard.
William’s trial began Tuesday and concluded Thursday. The six-person jury deliberated on the misdemeanor charge for two hours before reaching Thursday’s verdict of not guilty.
It appears though that most likely he got away not because he wasn’t guilty, but because of the safeguards in the law for the innocent. For you see his brothers in harms mishandled material and the process of getting the warrant so he could escape the first trial and it interjected reasonable doubt of the second.
Again, see the fact they had to get prosecutors from out of the county. So don’t worry he’ll be back on the roads in no time in a tax payer funded vehicle.

Because when you drink and drive while you’re a cop in your own jurisdiction, you can rely on the fact that everyone you work with will protect you.
