Calhoun County Prosecutor drops some charges in police officer's alleged drunken driving

by

BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Calhoun County’s new prosecutor is dropping two serious charges filed against Battle Creek Police Officer William Gensch.  It’s alleged that he was drunk last July when he crashed the car of the woman he was dating, who also happened to be a Battle Creek Police Officer.

Because no blood test was administered by the Lieutenant who intervened in Gensch's arrest, prosecution will be difficult.  That Lieutenant was later demoted to Sergeant for dereliction of duty.

Prosecutor David Gilbert is dropping felony resisting and obstructing and a misdemeanor failure to report charge, saying the evidence just isn’t there, but Gensch remains charged with  a misdemeanor offense of driving under the influence.
