Jeff Wood, Busted Again

Man, that decision by the Dems last year to pull him off of work-release to vote on the public employee contracts just keeps looking better and better with every legal infraction.

Former state legislator Jeff Wood has been jailed after being accused of altering a prescription.

Chippewa Falls police Capt. John Liddell says police called Wood in Monday after the Chippewa Valley Veterans Administration Clinic reported he may have changed a prescription dosage. Liddell didn’t know the medication’s name.

The 42-year-old was still jailed Wednesday.

The Chippewa Herald says (http://bit.ly/qDg6Bt ) Wood wasn’t arrested. His probation officer asked police to detain Wood on a probation hold. He pleaded no contest in January to fifth-offense operating while intoxicated.

Chippewa County District Attorney Jon Theisen says police forwarded the case Wednesday and he will decide whether to file charges.

Wood had been arrested for impaired driving three times since 2008, which triggered calls for his resignation. He chose not to seek re-election.

While initially elected to the Assembly as a Republican, Wood bolted  from the GOP caucus in a rumored deal with chief Democratic Assembly Campaigner and Madison Assemblyman Mark Pocan.  In the deal, Wood would become a declared Independent and would caucus with the Democrats in exchange of avoiding an opponent in 2008.

The deal worked out horribly for all parties involved as Woods’ personal life spiraled out of control.  His seat was picked up by the GOP in 2010.
