California DUI criminal defense lawyers news

GUSTINE, California

The police chief for the community of Gustine is stepping down following his arrest in February on suspicion of California DUI - drunk driving.

Acting Police Chief Devon Stavrowsky said Tuesday that Kris Anderson would resign "for the benefit of everybody involved."

California Highway Patrol officers arrested Anderson on Feb. 24 after they saw his Jeep allegedly weaving erratically, according to California DUI attorneys. He allegedly failed a California DUI field sobriety test, California DUI lawyers hear.

The 59-year-old Anderson had been police chief in Gustine, a town about 30 miles southwest of Modesto, since January last year. The city will drop the investigation into Anderson's California DUI arrest and start searching for a new chief, California DUI attorneys are told.
