In January we discussed the DWI arrest of a New Hanover County Commissioner. The man was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in December last year. The case has seen delays, and the commissioner is scheduled to appear in court on the DWI charges next week. In the meantime, authorities claim that the man was found slumped over the wheel of his car early Friday on a Wilmington, North Carolina, street.
Police arrested the commissioner a second time within a year on suspicion of DWI. In the most recent incident, authorities say that several types of unidentified pills were found. In the January story, police claimed that the man had admitted to having taken an antidepressant medication before the December 2012 DWI arrest.
