Bowling Green city commission

City of Bowling Green

A Bowling Green city commissioner charged with DUI will have to wait longer to have his day in court. 

The trial for Slim Nash was postponed after the commonwealth’s key witness didn’t appear at Tuesday's proceedings.

Officer Larry Zuniga with the Bowling Green Police Department, who arrested Nash, was absent from court because he was checking on family in south Florida following the hurricane.

"The judge issued a show cause and Office Zuniga will have to explain to the judge what happened," Special Prosecutor Don Jones told WKU Public Radio.  "I do think we're all understanding of where the officer's heart was, but there was a subpoena issued, so the judge will want him to explain that on the record."

The Bowling Green City Commission approved the second and final reading of an ordinance clearing the way for the sale of package liquor on Sundays and on Election Day. The 3-2 vote Tuesday night was the same margin for the law's first reading last month.
