Yikes, another Davenport Alderman suspected of DUI

Retired Davenport detective and recently elected Alderman Ron Van Fossen is facing suspicion that he was driving while drunk when he drove around railroad crossing gates and was hit by a slow-moving train. He pledges full cooperation.
Alderman Bob McGivern was found not long ago with a cup of whiskey in his car while he was parked at a restaurant drive-up window. (How that happened, I've no idea) He's pleaded not guilty and is awaiting a court hearing. He's lost his license but can drive on a permit allowing him to drive to and from work.

His comments in the paper were priceless....

"don't ask questions just let the investigation happen".

This from a former police detective.... tisk tisk... Should have known better I guess.
