BELCHERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — A western Massachusetts police chief is facing scrutiny after it was disclosed that he appeared to be drunk when he was pulled over for driving erratically in February, but was not cited or arrested.

Granby police on Wednesday released a report that indicated Belchertown Chief Francis Fox was pulled over in Granby on Feb. 1.

According to the report, the officer who pulled over Fox felt he was put in a difficult situation and Fox asked him “if he knew who I was.”

The report says Fox was unsteady on his feet and almost fell over when he got out of his vehicle. His breath smelled of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot.

Fox was driven home by the Granby officer.

Fox told The Republican newspaper that he had no comment
