Clinton Police Chief apologizes for Colquitt D.A.R.E appearance

By  | 

CLINTON, Tenn (WVLT) -- The Clinton Police Chief is apologizing for allowing University of Tennessee Vols' punter Britton Colquitt to speak to the Clinton School District's D.A.R.E class graduation in January.

Colquitt, 22, was arrested for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident early Sunday morning.

It's his fifth run-in with the law on alcohol charges, and he's due in court on March 5th.

In his letter to parents, Chief Rick Scarbrough says "I apologize for allowing Mr. Colquitt to be our speaker and accept full responsibility. He should have been screened more closely, possibly disclosed information himself, and not been allowed to address our group by the university."
