The Associated Press is reporting that the chief of the Schaghticoke Tribe was charged with driving under the influence on Christmas night.
The AP article further states that ¨Fifty-nine-year-old Richard Velky was arrested Christmas night. Police say an off-duty officer who saw Velky driving his SUV erratically pulled him over at about 9:15 p.m. Friday. Velky was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failure to drive right and breach of peace. He posted $5,000 bail and is to be arraigned Jan. 4 in Waterbury Superior Court. A woman who answered a phone listing for Velky Tuesday said his arrest wasn't newsworthy and hung up.¨
The Schaghticoke Tribe is recognized by the state of Connecticut.
