HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) — The East Gibson School District Superintendent has been released from the Vanderburgh County Jail after being charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
Deputies said James Wilson was taken into custody early Saturday morning after finding his vehicle in a ditch. According to a police report, Wilson told deputies was driving on Old State Road 57 when he dropped his soft drink and reached around for it, causing him to go into the ditch.
A police report showed Wilson also said he was going through major personal issues with work and family and was very depressed. He claimed he had not slept in three to four days.
Deputies said a breath test did not detect anything, but a different test showed depressants and stimulants. Wilson was released from jail on a $250 bond, according to the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office website.
A lawyer for East Gibson School District released the following statement:
“The Board of Trustees are aware of Mr. Wilson’s recent arrest. The initial paperwork that law enforcement and the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor file with the Court will be distributed to the Board for their review once it is filed with the Court, which I expect will occur on Monday morning. The Board will then monitor the activity in the criminal case. At this time, the Board makes no additional comment.”
