LEACHVILLE, AR-- A former Boy Scout district executive stood before a judge Tuesday night in Leachville on charges related to his second DWI arrest.  Judge Shannon Langston found William Steven Lee guilty on all counts.

Back in January, 50 year old William Steven Lee of Paragould was pulled over and arrested after driving erraticly on Highway 18 in Leachville. At the time, Lee was a Boy Scout district executive with the Quapaw area council and was driving a vehicle registered to the council. Police say Lee was involved in an accident before his arrest, where he damaged a mailbox.

Judge Langston found Lee guilty of DWI second offense, driving left of center, leaving the scene of an accident, not wearing a seatbelt, and refusing a breathalizer test. She suspended Lee's license for 2 years, but after a year he is eligible for the enterlock system, where he must blow into a breathalizer before the engine will crank. Lee will also pay to repair the damaged mailbox and has already filed an appeal.
