On July 7, the commander of the Michigan State Police Post in Gladstone was arrested for drunken driving after a one-vehicle accident in Chippewa County. A lab test later revealed his blood alcohol content was above the legal limit for drinking and driving. Due to a technicality, evidence of his intoxicated driving was not permissible in court and the case was dismissed. An internal investigation by the state police headquarters is pending. Meanwhile, the commander is suspended from work but continues to get paid.
