Police arrested the city of Quincy's former director of Central Services on drunken driving charges after he crashed into a tree and fled the scene.
Mike Beebe faces charges of driving under the influence and failure to give information upon damaging other property.
Beebe was westbound on State Street near 12th Street when he left the east side of the road and struck a tree, according to an Illinois State Police traffic report. He fled the scene, the report said.
Beebe served as the director of operations until late 2009 when the city severed its relationship with him. This came after Beebe turned himself in to police after an incident at the central services garage on Sept. 14, 2009.
