Mountlake Terrace police commander fired over DUI arrest

Mountlake Terrace police Cmdr. Don Duncan was terminated from the department today following an internal investigation related to his Feb. 1 arrest on suspicion of drunken driving, the city of Mountlake Terrace announced today.

Duncan, an 18-year veteran of the Police Department, was arrested by the Washington State Patrol at 1:30 a.m. on Feb. 1 in Lake Stevens, Chief Greg Wilson said in a news release. Duncan had been placed on administrative leave after he was charged with drunken driving, while the department completed an internal investigation.

Duncan was the assigned command duty officer at the time of the arrest, the city said, and he violated department policy. According to Wilson, Duncan said “he did not receive training and/or there was no clear policy regarding the duties and responsibilities of a Command Duty Officer.”

His case is scheduled for trial in Snohomish County District Court, the city said.
