RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - Racine County district attorney Rich Chiapete says he is “ashamed and embarrassed” that he drove while intoxicated and allegedly fled the scene of a crash on Friday night.

Racine Police say Chiapete was cited for crashing into a tree and traffic signal.

In a letter to the Journal Times of Racine, Chiapete states he was returning home from a birthday party and panicked when the crash happened.

He adds that he will work hard to restore the community’s faith in him and takes full responsibility for his actions.
