According to police, Fox was in an unmarked police vehicle on Feb. 1 and smelled of alcohol. Police had received a report that he was driving on the wrong side of the road. The Granby police report (see below) shows Fox refusing to exit his vehicle when asked, only agreeing to do so after being told he would be arrested. The report says that when Fox exited his police vehicle, a Granby officer "observed him to be very unsteady on his feet and almost fell over." Police said Fox repeatedly told Granby officers he was able to drive home safely, and when they refused, he said he did not like how he was being treated. "As I spoke with Chief Fox I observed his eyes to be red, extremely bloodshot and glassy. A strong smell of alcohol emitted from his breath as he spoke with me and he was slurring his words," the Granby police report, written by Patrolman Jason Richard, says. It was provided by the department, partially redacted, following a public records request by The Republican. The problem for the Granby officers, Chief Alan Wishart said, was Fox pulled rank on them, asking them if they knew who he was. "As I spoke with Chief Fox I observed his eyes to be red, extremely bloodshot and glassy." ~ police report "The officer was put in a compromising position," Wishart said in an interview, adding that Fox "put himself in this position." Records provided by the Granby police show an emergency call was made to dispatch at 9:38 p.m. onFeb. 1. A witness reported to police they had seen a vehicle, according to the report, "completely on the wrong side of the road on two occasions. Chief Fox stated 'no way' and that he was fine to drive home." Contacted by telephone Wednesday afternoon, Fox said, "It happened eight months ago. At this point, I am not going to comment." Wishart said he plans to issue a formal statement on the matter later Wednesday or Thursday morning. In the report of the incident, the officers said they used their discretion in not taking Fox into custody, instead driving him home. The incident apparently began in Belchertown, according to the report, when another driver told police his vehicle was nearly hit by Fox's vehicle. "Chief Fox and I had a brief conversation where he again stated he did not appreciate my attitude towards him and he asked me who I thought I was to talk to him that way. I again explained that he put me in a very difficult position. Chief Fox then asked me if I had never drove drunk before," the officer's report states.
