About 35 miles away from me. Investigation launched after Elma police chief crashes car 03/27/2002 The Associated Press SHELTON - The Elma police chief was arrested Wednesday after the car he was driving nearly struck a highway flagger, crashed into a utility pole and sent pedestrians scurrying to get out of its way, authorities said. Gregory Adams was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence, Washington State Patrol Capt. G.R. Otto said. Greg Adams was sworn in as Elma's chief of police in February. The Mason County sheriff's office received a call at about 8:30 a.m. on what appeared to be an unmarked police car driving erratically here. Undersheriff Gary Crane said the car drove through a construction zone, striking a traffic advisory sign and nearly hitting a highway flagger. The car then hit a utility pole in downtown Shelton before driving off again. As the car made its way through downtown Shelton, pedestrians in crosswalks had to jump out of its way to avoid being hit, Crane said. After following the car with lights flashing for about a mile, deputies were finally able to pull Adams over. Otto said Adams was taken to a local hospital and consented to a blood draw. The patrol is investigating. Adams was sworn in as Elma police chief last month. He previously was a patrol deputy for the Kitsap County sheriff's office

One of our dispatchers was reported as reckless and was doing similar actions. It took our guys quite some time to get him pulled over and he didn't remember any of it and had no idea what was going on. IT WAS A DIABETIC THING, had some thing to do with not controlling his diabeties(sp broken)

Don't know if that is the case here... just thought I would share. But since this one is a cop, it is more than likely DUI![peep]

I knew a guy who died in a single vehicle car wreck because of that. At least the blood test should be pretty conclusive on this.
