Palo Alto reporter detained for drugs

Brian Bothun, a reporter with the new upstart newspaper the Daily Post in Palo Alto, has been suspended after he was detained by Menlo Park police for alleged drug use. According to the Post, which reported the incident in this morning's edition, Bothun apparently became involved in a dispute that a motorist was having with another party at 2:34 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of El Camino Real and Ravenswood Avenue. When police arrived, they suspected Bothun was under the influence of a narcotic, and conducted sobriety tests. The officers then issued Bothun a citation for being under the influence and released him. A police report did not say what substance Bothun allegedly used. Daily Post owner and Editor Dave Price suspended Bothun yesterday. (Full disclosure: Price is also the Press Club's vice president and webmaster.)
