Liberty Dispatch posted a story asking questions about Captain Louis Guthrie and allegations surrounding him wrecking the LCSO's dually truck on South Padre Island. We suggested to Guthrie and Sheriff Patterson that the proper way of handling the allegations was to confront them and to tell the truth and get the information to those who pay their salaries (the taxpayers) out ASAP. Captain Guthrie has responded quickly and we will honor his request for an opportunity to clarify the facts. Guthrie has admitted he did have a wreck on the causeway and asked LD to withhold our story until he sends us the accident report Monday. We are yet to hear from Sheriff Patterson. We hope to pursue this story with the cooperation of officials, but we will get to the facts despite any attempts to cover them up. With their help, we will do so in a fair and balanced manner.
Stay tuned for updates.
