He was discharged in January 2011 from state monitoring for positive, missed and invalid toxicology screens, and suspended by the board in April 2011. The board reinstated his license in June 2011.

Board actions: $2,500 fine, state monitoring, abstain from drugs or alcohol. Unconditional license granted after he met requirements.
