◼ Planning Commissioner Noah Levy Arrested on Suspicion of DUI - LoCo
◼ Press release from the California Highway Patrol: - Times-Standard
On Saturday at approximately 0215 hours, Garberville CHP Officers were on patrol on Briceland Road, just west of Redway, CA. The officers attention was drawn to a silver Honda Fit traveling westbound on Briceland Road, ahead of their patrol vehicle. The officers observed the Honda exceeding the posted speed limit and failing to stop a stop sign. An enforcement stop was conducted on the vehicle near the area of Ruby Valley. They contacted the driver of the Honda and he was identified as Noah Levy, of Arcata, CA. While at the vehicle the officers smelled a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from within the vehicle. Levy was asked to exit his vehicle and subsequently was asked to perform a series of Field Sobriety Tests. Based upon his performance and observations made by the officers, Levy was placed under arrest for suspicion of Driving Under the Influence of Alchol (DUI). He was taken and booked into the Humboldt County Jail at approximately 0535 hours.
Now, does this affect Mr. Levy's ability to serve as Planning Commissioner? No. It does not. Whether one agrees with his views and decisions, or not.
John Chiv seems to agree, and goes further, asking "What if?" And, "Is this news?"
