A former West Valley City police lieutenant has been ordered to complete community service, resolving a 2010 DUI case.
In lieu of two days in jail, a South Salt Lake Justice Court judge on Monday ordered Kory Newbold, 50, to complete 48 hours of community service through South Salt Lake Parks and Recreation and pay a $1,400 fine.
Newbold was in charge of the unit that oversaw accusations of police misconduct in West Valley City when he was arrested in February 2010 on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
A Utah Highway Patrol lieutenant and DUI squad section member stopped Newbold for allegedly speeding and making an illegal lane change. The lieutenant, Steve Winward, later told The Tribune he could smell alcohol as he approached Newbold's BMW and he saw a police badge in Newbold's wallet. Winward said Newbold recognized him, said he lived just blocks away and asked the trooper to let him go.
Newbold retired from West Valley City and later received a nine-month suspension from the Utah Police Officer Standards and Training Council. He pleaded guilty in January to a reduced count of impaired driving, a class B misdemeanor.
Newbold's attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.
