Following up on an anonymous tip, the GUARDIAN has confirmed that Boise police Lt. Steve Butler was arrested by Valley County Sheriff’s deputies over the Memorial Day weekend and cited for driving under the influence .
He was apparently involved in some sort of crash. Since the misdemeanor was not witnessed by the deputies, he was issued a citation and released until a future court date. A Valley deputy told us that is a common practice when an alleged misdemeanor is not witnessed by officers and there was no case of “professional courtesy.”
