School Principal, Coach Pleads Guilty To DWI 12-09-2010

The Millington High School principal and football coach charged with drunken driving has pleaded guilty to a lesser count.
Roger Bearss, 45, plead guilty to driving while impaired and was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
Bearss won't have to serve that time if he doesn't violate his parole, which includes 24 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and submitting to random alcohol tests two times per month.
He was arrested in July after going the wrong way on Veterans Memorial Bridge.
Police said the varsity football coach registered .17 on a portable breath test for alcohol. The legal limit in Michigan is .08.
In 2003, Bearss plead guilty to driving while impaired near Traverse City. He was given two years of probation, a $550 fine and had to take a highway safety class.
At the time, Bearss was employed with the Frankenmuth School District.
He become the principal in Millington in 2007 and took on coaching duties after the 2009 season.
