CURRENT EVENTS: River Ridge continues to lead the region in visits and return on investments



At the outset of the meeting Monday, Board President Mark Robinson made a statement relating to the arrest of River Ridge Executive Director Jerry Acy at an OWI checkpoint in Clarksville on Aug. 25.

According to a Clarksville Police Department report, Acy failed multiple field sobriety tests and tested at a 0.11 blood-alcohol content on a portable Breathalyzer test, which is above the legal limit of .08. At Clarksville’s Police Department, Acy tested at 0.10 blood-alcohol content, according to the police report.

“I’m here to assure each and every one of you, board and community alike, that Mr. Acy is personally accepting full responsibility,” Robinson said.

Robinson added that he provided Acy with several recommendations from the judges and lawyers assistance program, or JLAP. JLAP is a program that assists attorneys and judges with substance abuse issues. Robinson also is a practicing attorney.

“Mr. Acy is taking those recommendations on JLAP seriously,” Robinson said. “During the last three weeks, Mr. Acy is not only doing everything that is required, but even everything that is recommended, both personally and professionally. I plan to support him in anyway possible as he continues along this journey of growth and development and I have absolute confidence, Jerry, in your bright future here.”
