The son of Asheville Police Chief William Anderson is accused of driving drunk and wrecking his car, according to troopers.

Trooper Gene Williamson with the North Carolina Highway Patrol said Chad Anderson was arrested Sunday morning after he wreck his car along Mills Gap Road.

Williamson said Anderson wrecked the car about 3 a.m. and failed a field sobriety test. He said Anderson had a blood alcohol level of 0.16, which is twice the legal limit in North Carolina.

Anderson was charged with driving under the influence and booked into the Buncombe County Detention Center.

Anderson was involved in another wreck earlier in 2013, which has received a lot of attention after the scene commander at that crash said the chief and another commander tried to make him cover up some of the facts surrounding the case.
