Gretna Police Chief Brian Bess has been charged with driving under the influence after Officers with the Tallahassee Police Department say they found him “very incoherent” while attempting to operate a motorcycle.
According to an arrest affidavit, it happened around 7 p.m. Friday. TPD Public Information Officer David Northway says officers were called out to Gina Drive in reference to an impaired driver.
TPD says Bess appeared to be intoxicated and his speech was slightly slurred.
We’re told the responding officer stated he’d had a previous encounter earlier that day with the chief, who appeared to have been intoxicated at that time also.
