The superintendent of the Carbon Cliff-Barstow School District was charged with operating while under the influence, according to court records.
According to an affidavit from Scott County Court, Andy D. Richmond was involved in a crash in Davenport on Saturday, December 15, 2018, near Interstate 280 and Kimberly Road. In place of a breathalyzer, the affidavit showed Richmond gave a blood sample, which showed his blood alcohol concentration registered over the legal limit.
Scott County Attorney Mike Walton told News 8 that the sample was analyzed by an outside lab.
News 8 spoke with Richmond, who denied the charge.
The charge, which was filed on January 31, 2019, indicates it was Richmond's second offense. According to court records, the first offense was a DUI that occurred in Jo Daviess County and dates back to 2016.
A school board member told News 8 that they had been informed of the incidents and were reviewing the situation.
Court records show that the next court hearing in the case was set for March 1.
