Wayne County Sheriff Carey Winders clarified today that he had never given a ride to a suspected drunken driver.

Winders had been quoted in a News-Argus story Friday as saying that when he was a rookie in the Goldsboro Police Department, he had taken home members of the City Council who had been drinking. He said today that he did not want to insinuate that these councilmen had been driving.

He said officers had sometimes given rides to people whom they felt were too intoxicated to drive or people who had been stopped but did not register the legal limit for intoxication on a breath sensor.
