SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The former director of Salt Lake City’s 911 Dispatch Center has been charged with DUI following his termination from the position.

The Deseret News reports Scott D. Freitag was charged with driving under the influence, having an open container in his car and possession of a firearm by an intoxicated person.

Freitag did not have a publicly listed attorney.

He was fired from the dispatch center Thursday after his arrest last week.

Centerville Assistant Police Chief Von Steenblik says Freitag’s blood alcohol content was more than 2 1/2 times over the legal limit.



Freitag serves as a Layton city councilman.

He said in a Jan. 4 interview that he made a mistake and is dealing with the consequences.
