HURON, S.D. (AP) — A school superintendent in South Dakota who pleaded guilty to drunken driving was arrested for allegedly driving with a revoked license about two weeks later.
KOKK radio reports that court documents show 40-year-old Wessington Springs Superintendent Lance Witte (WIT'-ee) was arrested by a Highway Patrol trooper Dec. 10 in Jerauld County and later released from jail on a personal recognizance bond. He's due in court on Tuesday.
Witte tells The Associated Press he thought he had complied with all the requirements for a work driving permit and thought he was driving legally. He says he was returning from a meeting.
Witte was given 90 days of probation on his DUI conviction. A 30-day jail sentence was suspended contingent on several conditions, including that Witte obey all laws for a year.
