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.
