Freitag was arrested, but released with a citation. He is being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, open container, and possession of a firearm by an intoxicated person.
Salt Lake City Mayor, Jackie Biskupski stated that Freitag was fired the next day.
“There is no acceptable reason for anyone to put innocent lives in danger by getting behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated, especially an individual leading a critical public safety agency,” Biskupski stated in the press release. “While I am angry and disappointed in Scott’s behavior, I do hope he gets help to address his problems, and that he finds the support of loved ones that he needs at this time.”
Freitag had been the director of the Salt Lake City 911 Bureau since 2012.
