Cherokee schools employee returns to work after DUI treatment

CANTON, Ga. -- A Cherokee County School District employee is back at work after completing treatment following his latest DUI arrest.

Mike McGowan, the district's former spokesman, returned to the CCSD on Monday, May 2. He now works at the supervisor level, a step below his previous position, in the accountability, technology and strategic planning department.

"Mr. McGowan's return to work was predicated upon his successfully meeting multiple conditions as determined by the department of personnel management," said Trey Olsen, assistant superintendent of personnel management for the CCSD.

McGowan was arrested on Dec. 17, 2010 after he was spotted driving on the wrong side of the road on Reinhardt College Parkway in Canton. Police subsequently found two empty beer bottles on the floor of his car and six bottle caps in his pants pocket.

McGowan was arrested for DUI in 1998 and 2003 as well.
