KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The director of the commission that

administers Jackson County's anti-drug tax has been arrested on a

charge of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Authorities allege that COMBAT Commission director Vicki Boyd

was stopped yesterday after an officer noticed her driving

erratically. Police say a breath test showed her blood-alcohol

content was more than twice the legal limit.

The COMBAT Commission administers the county's anti-drug tax.

Boyd had served as interim director since April 2003 until she was

hired as permanent director last June.
