Greenville (AP) — North Carolina fire chief resigned after confirming that authorities had arrested him on charges of drunk driving.
Greenville Fire / Rescue chief Eric Griffin announced on Sunday that he would resign, WITN-TV reported. The announcement came after the Nash County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that 50-year-old Griffin was arrested early Sunday and charged with drunk driving.
Griffin is traveling 94 mph in the 70 mph zone and was charged after a drinking test revealed a blood alcohol level of .20, said Deputy Prime Minister Brandon Medina. According to Medina, Griffin received a written promise on the two charges.
Griffin has been in the division since 1993 and has been Chief since 2014. Last month he announced that he would retire in December.
Deputy Chief Block Davenport has been appointed Deputy Chief.
