OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) -- There are still many more questions than answers after a Brunswick County judge last week dismissed a fire chief's DWI charge. So, what's next?
A lot of viewers have spoken out about Oak Island Fire Chief John House's dismissed DWI. Today we asked the town manager about House's future as fire chief. Town manager Jerry Walters, though, would only say two words during a phone conversation: "No comment."
We asked Walters if the town would review the December 2008 incident in which house was stopped at a checkpoint and blew a .14, which is almost twice the legal limit of .08, but he would not comment.
Many Oak Island residents we spoke with today said the dismissal of the fire chief's DWI is suspicious. While the majority of folks we spoke with were curious about the chiefs dismissed charge, others said he's human and made a mistake.
