McAllister chief of staff booked with DWI
MONROE - U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister says his chief of staff is on temporary leave after being booked with drunken driving.
The Swartz Republican says Adam Terry told him Saturday that he'd been arrested Friday in Richland Parish.
The News-Star says Terry declined to comment. KNOE-TV reports that Terry's bond is $2,000.
McAllister says that if Terry gets help and does what courts require, "he will be given a second chance in my office."
The arrest affidavit says Trooper Nicholas Gee stopped a vehicle that crossed the side and center lines of U.S. 425 near Rayville at 11:05 p.m. Sept. 12. Gee said Terry smelled of alcohol, did poorly on a sobriety test, refused to take a breath test and was booked with DWI and improper lane usage.
