Command Master Chief of Guided Missile Destroyer Gridley Fired After DUI Arrest, Navy Times Reports
Navy Times is reporting that the command master chief of the San Diego-based guided missile destroyer Gridley was fired earlier this month after being arrested for drunk driving in Millington, Tennessee.
According to the account, William R. Adams was relieved of duty on June 13 by Commander Benjamin Allbritton "for loss of confidence in Adams’ ability to fulfill his role."
"The relief happened the same day Adams was arrested while in Millington for a pre-deployment conference for the Gridley, which is scheduled to deploy later this year," Navy Times reported.
According to Navy Times, it's the tenth firing of a senior enlisted leader this year.
