Riverside police Chief Russ Leach was drunk when he crashed his city-issued car last month, authorities allege, and will face two misdemeanor counts from the incident.
Leach has been charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and driving with a blood-alcohol level above .08.
The determination came at the close of a nearly two-month probe following Leach’s controversial 3 a.m. wreck on Feb. 8.
