    Chief put on paid leave after arrest

    SHERBURN — Sherburn-Welcome Police Chief Brad Hughes was put on paid administrative leave Tuesday evening after being arrested for driving while impaired Saturday.

    The joint police board — consisting of members of the Welcome and Sherburn city councils — reached the decision under the advisement of legal counsel Jim Wilson.

    “He has been put on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the allegations,” Wilson said.

    Hughes was arrested in Fairmont on Saturday morning following a complaint of an erratic driver. A Fairmont police officer reportedly found Hughes driving with a blood-alcohol level of .25. Hughes had two small children with him in the vehicle.

    Hughes’ bail hearing was held Monday, and bond was posted.

    Hughes has been chief of the Sherburn-Welcome police department since the joint effort began in 1999. While an acting police chief has not been named, the police force is following its normal chain of command.

    Good to see that the Fairmont officer was able to arrest him. This is a very small, rural area, with lots of "I know so and so" and everybody knows everybody.

    I still have my reserves about DUI'ing coppers. Especially if there is no accident involved. If there is it is pretty much unhidable.

    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    I have not been on in while, but before I comment, this needs to be moved to a verified area. Moderators, if you please??

    Ok, just a thought. Did not want to post my thoughts in the public area. I will save it for another time.
