The Elkhorn City (KY) Police Chief has been suspended without pay following an alleged drunk driving accident, reports WSAZ.

Crystal Davis, 32, was arrested Sunday after she was involved in a single-vehicle crash that happened just after 9 p.m. on Highway 197 at Shelby Gap.

Davis has been the Elkhorn City Police Chief for about six months, and has been a police officer for nearly 14 years.

Troopers say they noticed she smelled strongly of alcoholic beverages, according to an arrest citation.

Davis entered a not guilty plea in Pike County District Court Monday morning. A pre-trial conference was set for November 3rd, court records indicate.

Wow, 32 years old and a "Chief", whats that a one person department? Guess she didn't "connect" the way "female officer can" according to the Greenville Chief in the other female officer story in this issue. Sad when any cop ignores the very laws that we enforce on others. She should face termination if found guilty. But being a "chief" she may skate since it is a rare thing when a "Chief" is held to any standers at all.

Yup! I was thinking the same thing. Thirty-two and a chief? Talk about taken the fast lane in your career. I would like to hear from someone in the department. I'm sure their's a story.

Guys look at the city. It says a population of 1060, do you really want to be chief in some one horse town? Someone had to take that job better her than me. If you guys are so bent out of shape you should apply, I bet they will have an opening soon. I'm sure you will love it there.
