Missouri State Rep. apologizes for DWI
State Representative Tim Meadows, a Democrat out of Imperial, has issued a public apology for his Saturday DWI arrest.
Meadows was arrested in Jefferson County. Officers report he was stopped around 12:15AM on Saturday for suspicion of DUI. He agreed to a breath test, but the results have not been released to the public. He was booked around 2:00AM and released about 45 minutes later of his own recognizance. Meadow’s car was towed away from the site of arrest.
Adding to the public outrage, Meadows serves on crime prevention and public safety committees. He has served since his initial election in 2004 and received a “Representative of the Year” award from the Missouri Police Chiefs’ Association.
In his public email apology, Meadows writes:
Late Friday evening I was arrested in Imperial on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. I am deeply sorry this incident occurred and sincerely apologize to my family and to my constituents. This has never happened in the past, and it certainly won’t happen again in the future. As this case is now a matter for the judicial system, my attorney has advised me to make no further comment at this time.
