Oceano board member resigns following DUI arrest
May 21, 2012
CHP officers arrested Searcy, 59, on Thursday for DUI after he swerved off U.S. Highway 101, over corrected, and rolled his Ford F-250 down the freeway. Officers closed the freeway’s northbound lanes for more than an hour following the accident.
Board members voted to appoint Searcy to the board in 2011 following the resignations of Jim Hill and Carol Henson. Searcy was first elected to the board in the early 1980s. He then lost his seat in 2004 after a four-year term.
