Michigan nurse license suspended after drunken driving conviction

Posted on Wednesday, March 11th, 2015    

The nursing license of a Kalamazoo man recently was suspended after he was convicted of intoxicated driving, MLive reported on March 4.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs confirmed on Wednesday that registered nurse William Darrel Simpson’s license was suspended last February 26. Simpson reportedly was sentenced to six days of imprisonment and a year-long probation after he was convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) on August 28, 2013. The Allegan County District Court also ordered Simpson to pay a fine worth $1,250. Simpson’s nursing license suspension is in accordance to the state’s public health code.
