Police chief pleads guilty to OWI; job status to be determined Monday

AMERY, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A northwest Wisconsin police chief has pleaded guilty to driving drunk.

Amery chief Thomas Marson entered his plea yesterday in Polk County Circuit Court to a citation for first-time O-W-I. A companion charge of driving with a prohibited blood-alcohol level was dropped. Marson was fined $741, and he'll lose his driver's license for six months.

The chief is on paid administrative leave, after he was arrested last weekend. The city council will meet Monday to discuss the situation.

Authorities said Marson drove his personal vehicle into a ditch late Saturday night about five miles south of Amery. He had a blood alcohol level of .156, almost twice the state's limit for intoxication.
