It was the second time in less than three years that Chief Holmes had been arrested for DUI by the Midlothian police. The first time was March 3, 2010. Court records indicate Holmes pleaded guilty and was sentenced to court supervision. Holmes asked a judge to only suspend his driver’s license for one month instead of the minimum one-year suspension called for in the law, and that was granted.
