FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: Pender commissioner’s DWI case delayed again

Monday, February 13th, 2012

CHARLOTTE, NC (WWAY) — More than a year after he was arrested for his third DWI charge, a Pender County Commissioner’s court case was delayed again today.

As WWAY was first to report in August, Matthews Police in Mecklenburg County pulled David Williams over in December 2010 after they spotted “a suspicious vehicle stopped in the middle of” US 74. The report says Williams’s blood alcohol level was 0.15.

A court date in September was pushed back to December. That hearing was delayed until today, when a judge granted a motion to suppress the breathalyzer results. The case has been continued until a Finding of Facts hearing March 26, according to Charles Keller, a spokesman for Mecklenburg County Court.

Fellow Pender County Commissioners did not know about the arrest until WWAY uncovered the information last summer.

According to criminal records, Williams was convicted twice for DWI: once in 1990 and again in 1994. Williams also has a history of speeding and other traffic violations. Williams has refused to comment on the case.

FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: Jayne makes case to get job back

Monday, February 13th, 2012

LELAND, NC (WWAY) — Tim Jayne tried to get his old job back this morning.

Twelve days after being fired as Leland Police Chief, Jayne met with Town Manager David Hollis to make his case why he deserves to keep his job.

Hollis said Jayne’s firing was part of his attempt to get things back on track in Leland after months of controversy sparked by allegations of misconduct and corruption WWAY was first to uncover.

Hollis says the appeal process is something department heads always have the option to do so their voices are heard by administration.

“It gives him a chance to say anything that may change my mind, and it gives me an opportunity to look at those things,” Hollis said after meeting with Jayne this morning.

Hollis says he has 15 business days to review Jayne’s appeal. He then must give jayne his decision in writing.

We tried to talk to Jayne this morning after the meeting, but he slipped out of a back door of Town Hall.
