LA hospital CEO fired after second DWI charge
The Slidell Memorial Hospital Board of Commissioners voted to fire the hospital's CEO Bob Hawley. The decision came after Hawley was arrested July 13 by Causeway police officers for driving while intoxicated. He was taken to St. Tammany Jail and spent several hours behind bars and was released on a $2,500 bond. Police said they stopped Hawley's BMW convertible near the north end of the bridge, because he was driving erratically, and swerving in and out of his lane. Police said Hawley did very poorly on a field sobriety test and was taken to State Police Troop L, where he failed a Breathalyzer test. This was Hawley second DWI arrest in the past 6 years. Louisiana State Police stopped him about 12:30 a.m. March 13, 2005 on U.S. Highway 190 in Mandeville. He was arrested on drunken driving charges after State Police said he was swerving with an open beer in his car. Those charges do not appear on the St. Tammany Parish Clerk of Court Website and State Police spokesman Trooper First Class Nick Manale said he does not know what ever happened with those charges.
