(3/15/05 - STRASBURG, VA) — A police chief was ordered held without bail Monday on charges of driving drunk twice in one day. Middletown Police Chief Roger Ashley has been held in jail since his arrest Saturday. An April 11 trial was scheduled after a court appearance Monday.
Ashley was arrested the first time in his unmarked police car and a second time, five hours later, in his personal vehicle, Strasburg Police Chief Marshall Robinson said.
Officers responded to the first arrest after Robinson's car had run into a vehicle on Route 11 in this northern Virginia community.
Robinson was arrested a second time in his personal vehicle, police said.
Robinson's status as chief of Middletown was to be reviewed by town leaders later Monday.
