Mayor: Clayton Police Chief Cited for DUI

Posted: Updated:

CLAYTON, Del. -- The mayor of Clayton on Friday said the town's council will convene this month for a special executive session after the town's police chief was cited for DUI last weekend.

Mayor David Letterman said he confirmed the Aug. 12 incident with Police Chief Brian Hill. The town council has scheduled to meet for executive session during a special meeting on Aug. 29.

Delaware State Police said Hill, 47, was pulled over about 10 p.m. on Aug. 12 in the Smyrna area and cited for DUI and Failure to Remain in a Single Lane.

"He was released on a traffic citation. A DUI investigation ensued and he was transported from the scene by troopers back to Troop 9 where he was cited for DUI alcohol," said Sgt. Richard Bratz, a Delaware State Police spokesman.

Letterman said the situation was "regrettable" but declined to comment further, citing the upcoming executive session.

Hill did not respond to requests for comment on Friday.
