Felony DUI Charges For Charter School Director

Our children look to those of us who are adults as role models. Ideally, we want to present to them and the world the best way to behave and act in public and private life and to do it with as much integrity as possible. Unfortunately, even as adults, anyone can make a mistake that they come to regret greatly.

AZ Central reports that Charles Tack, 31, who serves as Executive Director for Arizona’s State Board of Charter Schools is currently facing two felony counts after he was involved in a non-injury freeway crash on Thursday, May 20th.

Authorities have alleged that Tack drove his vehicle into oncoming traffic while he was traveling westbound on Loop 202, near the Interstate 10 interchange. Investigators indicated that Tack had crossed a double yellow line into eastbound lanes, driving on the shoulder and even colliding with a barrier wall and continued heading westbound.

He later collided with an eastbound vehicle that swerved in an attempt to miss Tack’s vehicle. The move caused an opposite direction sideswipe. Tack pulled into a closed westbound off-ramp shortly after the collision. The woman who had been driving the vehicle that Tack collided with told law enforcement officers that she took Tack’s car keys because she feared that he would flee the scene of the crash.

Tack admitted to officers at the scene that he had been drinking before the accident. Officers indicated in their report that Tack did smell strongly of alcohol and exhibited other signs of intoxication, including slurred speech, and he occasionally lost his balance.

Tack was booked into jail at Furth Avenue but was later released.

Kathy Senseman, President of the Arizona Charter Board, said in a statement that Tack understands the gravity of the situation and that he understands even as a one-time incident, it is unacceptable behavior given his position with the board.

In the Interim, Senseman said that Tack will be closely monitored and will take the appropriate action as the legal case against him progresses. In the interim, however, the board has determined that Tack will not be allowed to drive a state vehicle for work or non-work purposes.
