The drunk-driving case against Darrell Williams has been postponed again.
Kingston police charged him with driving under the influence and violation of implied consent following a lunchtime crash on Sept. 17.
Williams, 51, was the vice president of business development for The Roane Alliance at the time of his arrest, and he still holds that position.
His court date in the case was set for Nov. 12, but got reset to Dec. 10.
Williams’ attorney, Tom McFarland, reportedly had a conflict that day, so the case was rescheduled for March 4.
According to the arrest warrant, Kingston police officer Roy Montgomery found an empty bottle of vodka on the dash board of Williams’ car.
The warrant also said the crash caused $5,000 worth of damage to a fire hydrant.
“I gave Mr. Williams three (sobriety) tests, which he could not do,” the warrant said.
