Some things are too good to set aside until Monday morning.
Two high-ranking Louisville Metro Government officials were arrested Friday night.
Elizabeth Hoffman, Majority Caucus Director, and Steve Rowland, Chief Financial Officer, were both arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
Of course, Fischer offered up the typical excuse he uses when one of his people ends up getting arrested on alcohol-related charges. How many does this make, now?
Rowland has been at the center of keeping information from reaching the public eye. He was the star shit denier during the Metro Council’s lengthy whistleblower investigation.
And Hoffman, at the behest of Jim King, has consistently run interference for Fischer’s myriad nightmares. She spent weeks and weeks threatening and attempting to silence Democratic members of the Ad Hoc committee.
Wondering why things have been so screwed up?
There you go. Fischer’s guy and King’s lady. Both sitting in jail.
There’s more from WAVE:
According to Louisville Metro police, Rowland and Hoffman were approached by management at El Nopal on Zorn Avenue and asked to leave due to heavy intoxication and provocative intimate behavior.
Witnesses then reported seeing the two go inside of a white SUV. Officers approached the vehicle in the parking lot and determined Rowland or Hoffman were both too intoxicated to drive.
Bets on how long it takes Greg Fischer to give Rowland a raise and a commendation upon his return to work?
Metro Council’s Democratic Caucus released the following statement this morning:
“Members of the Democratic Caucus are aware of this situation. The public expects proper conduct at all times from Metro Government employees and what happened is unfortunate. The Caucus will review this situation to determine if any action is necessary according to Caucus Rules.”
What most media outlets aren’t reporting is… well, everything in Steve Rowland’s citation.

Here’s the best part:
Charge 1: ALCOHOL INTOX IN A PUBLIC PLACE (1ST AND 2ND OFFENSE)
Charge 2: DISORDERLY CONDUCT, 2ND DEGREE
Officers were dispatched to listed location on two subjects who were asked to leave location due to heavy intoxication and provocative intimate behavior. Caller stated they saw subjects get into a white SUV and believed they were having sexual relations. Officers made contact with listed subjects. Above subject was in vehicle in a state of disrobe in public view. Above subject smelled strongly of Alcoholic beverage, glassy eyes, and unsteady. Subject and friend were manifestly under the influence and no condition to drive and no where to go to ensure their safety. Subjects were already told to leave the premise by management of the El Nopal. Subject was a danger to himself, and caused public alarm. Co-Defendant: Elizabeth Hoffman.
You can probably figure out what that means on your own.
And the “white SUV”? Could that be a government-owned vehicle?
Possibility City is manifestly under the influence of a hot mess and dearth of leadership.
Yep, it was a city vehicle.
Turns out it was a patron who called the cops – not the restaurant. Fascinating.
