Acting Amery Chief Of Police Named
A police chief suspected of driving drunk is now on administrative leave.
A statement from Amery City Administrator Darcy Long names retired Sgt Mark Meyer as acting Amery Police Chief while Chief Thomas Marson is on leave. Meyer is a part-time officer with the department. The city council plans to discuss the investigation in closed session on February 24. Marson is accused of driving drunk and putting his vehicle into the ditch at State Highway 46 and County Road A near Amery Saturday night.
A sheriff’s office report shows that Marson told a deputy he slid into the ditch because of slippery roads. He was later arrested.
