FIRST ON 3: Pender Co. commissioner’s DWI case dropped
PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Prosecutors in Charlotte have dropped a DWI charge against a Pender County Commissioner. A spokesman for Mecklenburg County Courts says the District Attorney voluntarily dismissed the charge against David Williams Friday. There’s no word on why the charge was dropped.
As WWAY was first to report last year, Matthews Police pulled Williams over in December 2010 after they spotted “a suspicious vehicle stopped in the middle of” US 74. A police report said Williams’s blood alcohol level was 0.15. In February, though, a judge granted a motion to suppress the results of a breathalyzer.
According to court records, Williams was convicted of DWI in 1990 and again in 1994.
Williams has not yet returned a call for comment.
