Austin Officer May Lose Law License

An Austin police officer’s law enforcement license is in jeopardy after he plead guilty to driving drunk.

The incident occurred less than a year after the officer was forced to fire a deadly shot at a man who was evading arrest. The man reached for a gun, causing the officer to fire his gun. The officer claims that, because of his guilt over the incident, he was led to alcohol and excessive drinking. The officer also claims that he turned to his department superiors to seek help after the traumatic event.

The officer was fired and then reinstated with a brief suspension. He will be tried for a DWI on March 7 and may lose his law enforcement license.

Grand Rapids denies lone applicant for medical marijuana grower’s license

Several months ago, the city of Grand Rapids passed a statute to require medical marijuana growers to procure licenses as home-based businesses. However, since that time, the city has not issued a single license. The new ordinance requires that the businesses obtain a $224 license and undergo regular inspections. The lone applicant was denied by city officials.

Some critics say that the terms of the new ordinance are too restrictive and that it was designed with the intent to drive these types of businesses out of the city. The state is home to 45,800 medical marijuana patients.
