Former Columbia Police Chief Pleads Guilty to Excessive Blood Alcohol

The former chief of the Columbia Police Department pleaded guilty Friday morning to driving with excessive blood-alcohol content.

Ken Burton didn't appear in municipal court at the hearing, but was represented by his attorney Andrew Popplewell. Burton was originally charged with a DWI and failure to yield.

The prosecutor decided to drop the failure to yield charge. Burton pleaded guilty to the class B misdemeanor charge of driving with excessive blood-alcohol content.
