A Siouxland school official has been charged with drinking and driving following an incident earlier this month at the Iowa Great Lakes. 

According to court documents 57-year-old Rod Earleywine, who serves as the superintendent of the Sergeant Bluff School District, was pulled over around 10:30 P.M. on August 5th in Spirit Lake. 

Authorities say that Earleywine was stopped for failure to yield after he pulled out in front of another vehicle. When questioned by police Earleywine admitted to drinking two glasses of wine and part of a margarita earlier that evening. Police say that he showed impairment on field sobriety tests and took two PBT tests registering .097 and .087. Earlywine told officers at the scene that he could “kind of” feel the effects of the drinks. 

Earleywine was booked into the Dickinson County Jail and released after posting a $1,000 bond. His next court date is scheduled for September 7th at 9:30 A.M.

The Sergeant Bluff School District still lists Earleywine as their superintendent on the the District website.
