Sigh. Another day, another scandal:
A Franklin County commissioner was arrested late Wednesday on charges of drug possession and assault after a 911 call was placed from a boat in the Pamlico Sound.
Harry Foy is charged with one count of assault on a female, possessing less than half an once of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, said Dare County Sheriff Rodney Midgett.
Sheriff’s deputies received the 911 call from the alleged assault victim while she was on board a 25-foot boat three miles off shore of the Outer Banks town of Hatteras, Midgett said..
The call was dispatched to the Coast Guard, who brought Foy and three others to shore. The other people in the boat were charged with possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Foy could not be reached immediately for comment. He was released early Thursday morning on a $2,000 bond.
Yes, he’s a Republican.
