Officer Suspended With Pay Following Weekend Arrest

ARDMORE, Okla. (AP) -- An Ardmore police sergeant has been
suspended with pay following his weekend arrest on a drunken
driving charge.

Deputy Chief John Beene said Sgt. Billy Eades was arrested early
Sunday after a disturbance at a restaurant parking lot. Beene said
six of the 10 people in the parking lot, including Eades, appeared
to be victims of assault. Eades suffered minor facial injuries.
Police department officials said he may face assault charges.

Beene said the investigation continues.

Eades, who was off duty, left the scene in his personal car with
three others. Officers sent to stop the car and interview Eades
arrested him for driving under the influence and took him to the
Carter County Detention Center.

Eades has been with the force nine years. He is on
administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of a criminal and
internal investigation and the pending charges.
