    Sad to see a person in authority make a mistake. Being in a government funded vehicle is equally sad.

    The drive through the canyon by Mantua is the biggest speed trap in northern Utah. Most who travel that section of road know it. Ironic that an individual who earnestly and aggressively enforces our laws gets caught breaking them.

    I'll be curious to see what 'mercy' is shown. At 3 mph over, I was given no mercy!

    This is Utah, he will be given a slap on the wrist, told to undergo treatment and maybe lose a TR card.

    It's hard to enforce the law when those in charge of enforcing it break those laws.

    Well, here's a chance to see what happens. Today's other D-News article about leniency towards Utah cops that break the laws. This guy was a badged, armed, official (Chief, no less) drunk, in a government vehicle. So drunk, that cops pulled over another cop. Last time, SLC's Scott Freitag was over 3 times the legal limit, with an open container (dropped) and carrying a loaded weapon (dropped). They just made him Mayor of Layton.
