In a Redford case, a high school teacher was charged with an OWI following a minor accident.

For a public school teacher, you can imagine how serious it is to be charged with a drunk driving offense.
Redford police officers are amongst the best in the area. When cases arise where a person might be actually innocent and the police make a mistake, these officers readily admit it. As a result, the prosecutor offered to reduce the case to a careless driving.
