Calif. chief charged with DUI in cruiser crash

Leach was allegedly drinking at a topless bar before he crashed his city-owned car

Press Enterprise

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — In the hours before officers stopped him last month, Riverside Police Chief Russ Leach mixed 11 drinks with up to five prescription medications, leaving him so intoxicated he had no idea where he was - or that he'd wrecked his city-issued car, authorities said.

Leach, 62, was charged Monday with misdemeanor driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit. He was not arrested, but ordered to appear in court for arraignment Thursday.
