Police Report: Sun Valley Assistant Police Chief Hit Parked Car 3 Times Before DUI Arrest


The DUI arraignment of Sun Valley Assistant Police Chief Michael Crawford has been pushed back. Originally slated for Aug. 27, Crawford will now need to appear in Blaine County Magistrate Court on Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Crawford has been suspended with pay in the wake of being citing for drunken driving on Aug. 11.

This week's Idaho Mountain Express reports that court documents say Crawford backed into a parked vehicle three times on Main Street in Hailey, all observed by a Hailey police officer. Crawford wasn't arrested but was issued a citation.

According to law enforcement, Crawford failed three field sobriety tests and registered a blood alcohol level more than double the legal limit.
