West Shore Community College President Chuck Dillon waives his right to an arraignment. Dillon was scheduled to appear in the Manistee District Court this morning on charges of operating with a high blood alcohol concentration. Because he waived his right, he will have a pretrial next month. Dillon was arrested in Manistee, about three weeks ago, for drunk driving. His blood test results revealed that he had a blood alcohol level of .186, which classifies as "super drunk." Dillon is currently on paid administrative leave from the college and must complete an alcohol treatment program while on leave.
