FIRST ON 3: DWI case against former WHA CEO settled
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The case is closed against the former Wilmington Housing Authority CEO charged last year with drunk driving, after the case was quietly settled recently.
Michael Krause pleaded guilty Oct. 22 to Level 2 DWI before Judge Russell Davis. He was sentenced to a one-year suspended sentence, two years of supervised probation, a fine of $500, court costs of $290 and a $300 lab fee, according to a spokeswoman for the New Hanover County District Attorney’s Office. She says the fines have already been paid.
Krause was arrested in September 2013 for DWI after another driver called 911 after seeing Krause’s SUV swerving on Oleander Drive. Police went to Krause’s home, where records showed he blew a 0.35 and 0.31 BAC. Krause, who had been with WHA since 2008, was fired a few days later. This was his second DWI arrest during his time in Wilmington.
