A north Alabama police chief has been placed on leave after he was charged with driving under the influence.
According to officials, on December 5, Tuscumbia Police Chief Tony Logan was arrested at his Florence home. City attorney Tom Heflin asked that he be placed on administrative leave the following day.
Police said the arrest came after a report from a caller that damage to a mailbox and other minor damage had been caused by a vehicle. According to a police report, Logan was drunk at the time of his arrest.
Logan was named chief of police in July of 2008.
