Recently, David Wright was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. According to police reports, he had a stolen .44 Magnum tucked in his front waist band, he was driving while intoxicated, he had possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana and he was carrying a concealed weapon, but no charges were filed. Why is that?

Douglas County District Atty. Christine Kenney Tonkovich said the case was referred back to police because all the reports hadn't been received yet. Wright, 23, Lawrence, was charged Wednesday in another case with two counts of aiding a felon, one count of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, one count each of felony and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of Kansas drug tax stamp laws. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Nov. 4.
