The Washington Post reported today that the Prince George County sheriff’s deputy is facing no criminal charges after a DUI arrest. A month ago, police found Cpl. Donovan Gholston with his car stuck in a ditch. Gholston failed a sobriety test and was taken to the police station.
County Sergeant, David Essing, ended up releasing Gholston without criminal charges. Sgt. Essing’s actions resulted in an immediate investigation, resulting in the sergeant’s suspension. (Essing has since returned to duty.) Gholston still has his job.
Many questions arose as to why Essing dismissed Gholston, including political motives.
