O'Gara's director faces drunken driving charges in Westm'd

   The O’Gara Group’s Tactical Operations Branch Manager, Ronald Boline, was in Montross last Monday night when the Westmoreland Industrial Development Authority accepted a contract that will allow the O’Gara Group to locate a training facility in the county’s industrial park near Montross.
   According to O’Gara’s mission statement, the new establishment will “provide a world-class tactical training and services facility that increases the level of professionalism supporting the United States of America’s initiatives and policies.”
   Boline shared that characterization with the Westmoreland public on January 12. On January 13 the Westmoreland Sheriff’s Office issued a press release reporting that on January 6, 2009 “Ronald P. Boline age 48 of King George was arrested on D.U.I charges.”
   The Sheriff’s report and news that the O’Gara Group would locate in Westmoreland were published in last week’s edition of The Journal and readers responded immediately. On January 14 The Journal reviewed the public information on file in Westmoreland County’s General District Court concerning Boline’s January 6 arrest.
Boline was arraigned in Westmoreland County General District Court on January 13 and a trial was scheduled in the same court for 10:00 a.m. on March 3. The March trial date was established in order to accommodate the legislative calendar of Boline’s defense attorney, Senator Richard Stuart. A former County Attorney and Commonwealth’s Attorney in Westmoreland county, Stuart also represented the O’Gara Group when the Westmoreland Supervisors met with the Industrial Development Authority and the O’Gara Group on the evening of January 12.
   Westmoreland Sheriff’s Office Deputy R.R.Torres authored the incident report this paper reviewed in that General District Court public file.
   “While on patrol on Route 205,” wrote Torres, “I observed a vehicle that had run off the road at the intersection of Route 628. At that time I observed a white male on the rear of the vehicle trying to attach something to get the vehicle pulled out.
   “At that time I approached the subject on foot and asked the male what happened. He stated to me that he was traveling north on Route 205 and he passed his turn at Route 631. When he attempted to turn around at Route 628, he ran off the road.
   “While speaking with him I was able to smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath. He had slurred speech and glassy eyes. At that time I asked him how much he had to drink and [he] stated 'three Crowns and Coke.'
   “I began FST’s [field sobriety tests] and he failed. He was placed under arrest at 11:01 p.m.”
Boline appears to have been given a reckless driving charge at the scene of his driving mishap. According to the records on file in Westmoreland’s General District Court, it was at Northern Neck Regional Jail that a magistrate reviewed the Sheriff’s Deputy’s sworn statement and found that there was “probable cause to believe that [Boline] committed the offense charged” under Section 18.2-266 of the Virginia Code.
   The DWI charge is described as a first offense in the General District Court paperwork. The same records reveal that Boline was released at the regional jail after putting up $2,500 in unsecured bond as a condition of recognizance. A court employee familiar with the procedure explained that the man had been released from jail on his own personal recognizance.
