The board of West Shore Community College, in Michigan, placed President Charles Dillon on paid leave Monday night, following his drunk driving arrest last week, The Mason County Press reported. The board also required Dillon to enter a residential alcohol treatment program and to return the car owned by the college. Dillon was arrested after police received reports of a drunk driver. He spent a night in jail before being released on bond. Dillon spoke briefly at the meeting, saying: “I take full responsibility for my behavior. I own it. I am filled with regret. I let down the college, the board, my colleagues and friends who I have worked so hard to build the reputation of this college and most of all, I let down my family. I am so sorry and I ask for your forgiveness.”
