Springfield Schools’ Director Of Transportation Arrested For DWI

Sharing is caring!

The Springfield Public Schools director of transportation has been arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The district says it’s aware of Rick Emling’s situation and is reviewing all the information relating to it.

But in a news release, R-12 Spokeswoman Teresa Bledsoe says “personnel issues are confidential, so at this time, I do not have any additional information to share.”

Emling was stopped by a state trooper just after midnight Saturday morning near Sunshine and Lone Pine in Springfield, and according to a Highway Patrol arrest report, he failed to signal and drive within a single lane.

Emling was booked into the Greene County jail, but was released sometime over the weekend.

He does not face any formal charges at this time.
