Little Rock Director Cited For Driving While Intoxicated

Jan 11, 2015

A member of Little Rock's board of directors has been cited for driving while intoxicated.

A Little Rock Police Department report says 48-year-old Kenneth Richardson was cited for DWI and traffic offenses on Saturday evening after an officer observed his car swerving at a high rate of speed. The officer caught up with Richardson, who changed lanes without signaling.

The report says Richardson then pulled the car into a parking lot and struck a shrub before stopping.

A breath test produced a blood-alcohol content of .174 - more than twice the legal limit. A later test produced a .187 reading.

The report says Richardson was released. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney. Richardson is serving his third term on the board.
