Medical Examiner Drunk at Scene of Fatal DUI Crash

We can file this under a perfect storm of mistakes and drinking. Over the weekend there was a flurry of law related activity in Washington state. From a trooper being hit by an alleged DUI driver to the horrific slaying of four officers (and subsequent slaying of the alleged slayer). But this one presents the most interesting questions in my opinion.

Over the holiday weekend, Snohomish County saw the worst fatality DUI accident we’ve seen in recent years. However, that’s only PART of the story.

The Everett Herald reports that a County Official, driving a county vehicle, arrived on scene to help, and ended up going home in cuffs. The investigator was arrested for DUI after arriving on scene drunk.
