Doug “Dear Jerry” Parker has been ordered to spend a night in jail following an arrest for drunk driving the night he recalled his hostile bid for bankrupt Delta Airlines. From CNN Money:
At a hearing in Scottsdale City court, Parker “accepted full and total responsibility for his recent DUI charge by entering a guilty plea to this charge (against the advice of his attorney),” US Airways said in a statement.
Parker was ordered to spend 24 hours in jail on March 15, was fined $1,646.25 and ordered to receive alcohol screening at the Center for Recovering Families, according to the Scottsdale City Court Clerk’s office.
A second DUI charge and a speeding charge were dismissed.
Parker was pulled over for speeding, driving 65 mph in a 45 mph zone in Scottsdale, on Jan. 31 at 11:30 p.m., said Sgt. Mark Clark.
