Alexandria Police Chief Weaves His Way Toward Retirement

|


The NBC affiliate in Washington, D.C., reports that Alexandria, Virginia, Police Chief David Baker, the staunch DUI foe last seen blowing a 0.19 percent blood alcohol reading on a Breathalyzer test after a traffic accident on Saturday night, has announced his retirement with "a great deal of humility and remorse." It's a classier exit than Eliot Spitzer, guilty of similarly striking hypocrisy, managed to arrange. Then again, Spitzer's encounters with a prostitute, unlike Baker's crash, did not involve any nonconsenting parties.
