Spokane Deputy Cited In CdA DUI

Update: The lead firearms instructor for the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving last weekend in Coeur d’Alene. Deputy Daniel Knight, 42, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.19 and 0.188 during breath tests administered after his arrest early Sunday. The legal limit for driving is .08. Coeur d’Alene Police Officer Jared Reneau said he was about to turn into the police substation on Fourth Street and Foster Avenue when he noticed a silver truck driving an estimated 40 mph on Fourth, where the speed limit is 25 mph/Meghann Cuniff, SR.

HMOffsuite: Why does the press and media always have to mention a person’s profession, affiliation or association when an individual gets a DUI, while enjoying his leisure time? He’s really just a person, having a good time on his weekend, and made a stupid decision to drive his car, when he shouldn’t have been driving.

Question: Is it fair for the media to draw attention to the fact that a Spokane County deputy was cited for DUI?
