Grayslake Police Chief Matthew T. McCutcheon placed on leave after drunken driving arrest
The police chief in north suburban Grayslake has been placed on paid leave after being charged with DUI after an accident in Wisconsin.
The Grayslake Village Board met Thursday night to discuss how to handle Chief Matthew McCutcheon’s legal problems, and Mayor Rhett Taylor Friday announced McCutcheon was being placed on leave.
“For twenty years, Chief Matt McCutcheon has been dedicated to the safety and security of our Village. During this time, his standard of performance has been exemplary,” Rhett said in a statement. “The reports of the events of March 30, 2012, are inconsistent with his service to and history with the Village, its community organizations and civic groups.”
