GALENA, Kan. (AP) — A southeast Kansas prosecutor has dropped a charge of driving under the influence against former Pittsburg State football coach Chuck Broyles.
Galena City Attorney Kevin Cure announced the decision Tuesday. Cure says the machine used to test Broyles’ blood-alcohol level the night of Nov. 24 hadn’t been properly calibrated.
Broyles was tested and charged with misdemeanor DUI after being pulled over for speeding. He had pleaded not guilty.
A week after his arrest, Broyles announced he was retiring after 20 years as the Gorillas’ head football coach. He remained as Pittsburg State’s athletic director but was placed on paid leave pending resolution of the DUI case.
