Police receive suspensions

Two members of the White Pigeon Police De­partment received suspen­sions following a special meeting by the village council last week.

The action was the result of investigation by the personnel committee.

Chief Lynn Baker and Sgt. Bill Bur­goyne were sus­pended five days each following the board’s action Wednesday.

The suspensions are separate from any punishment possibly yielded through the court process.

Burgoyne and Baker were involved in a crash in April in Branch County. Each tested 0.13 percent blood-alcohol content. Burgoyne was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated and hav­ing open containers in the vehicle.
