Protection From Being Arrested for DUI

West Jordan, Utah City Councilman Claims “Protection” from Officers Who Arrest Him for DUI

By Ken K. Gourdin

A West Jordan, Utah, city councilman recently was charged with DUI after he returned to the bar where he had become inebriated to retrieve his vehicle after being given a ride home by a West Jordan police officer. As South Jordan, Utah officers who were called to the scene to deal with the conflict of interest attempted to take him into custody, he stated he had “protection” as a member of the city council.

Had I been one of the officers who responded to the scene, I would have told him, “Not to worry, Sir. If it’s protection you’re interested in, the place where you’re going is very well protected.”

Just as others must breathe to live, I must write. I have been writing creatively almost ever since I learned to write, period! I have written fiction, book- and article-length nonfiction, award-winning poetry, news, sports, features, and op-eds. I hope, one day, to write some motivational nonfiction, a decent-selling novel, a stage play, and a screen play.
