Plea deal in Branch County for White Pigeon police sergeant accused in drunk driving accident

COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - A police sergeant from the Village of White Pigeon in St Joseph County who was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in Branch County after crashing his car in April, has cut a deal with the Prosecutor’s office for reduced charges. Instead of facing trial for driving under the influence and an open intoxicant charge, he will plead to driving while impaired.

William Burgoyne and his passenger, Police Chief Lynn Baker were both given a week off work without pay. Authorities say the chief was also legally drunk at the time.
