Tim Newman, the embattled former Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority CEO, was charged Tuesday with driving while impaired, according to the Charlotte Observer.
Records show Newman was arrested late Tuesday and also charged with hit and run property damage and failing to give information, according to the website of the Mecklenburg County jail.
The website says he was arrested by the N.C. Highway Patrol, but a sergeant for the Mecklenburg County office was not immediately available on Wednesday.
Newman briefly assumed an executive sales position within the CRVA after Tom Murray replaced him last year. In late February, Murray announced Newman's departure from the booster group, according to the Observer.
