A Dubuque Community School Board member was arrested on criminal mischief and burglary charges following a Saturday night incident at the Dubuque Golf and Country Club.
George Alan Davis, 50, of 120 S. Grandview Ave., was arrested at 11:02 p.m. Saturday at his residence.
According to Dubuque Police, Davis was involved in a disagreement with a bus driver at the Dubuque Golf and Country Club, 1800 Randall Place. Davis believed the bus was parked in his way. Police say he beat on the hood of the bus (resulting in the criminal mischief charge) and entered the bus to confront the driver. Breaking into somebody’s vehicle is considered burglary.
Davis was released Sunday morning on a $5,000 unsecured bond.
In a statement to the Telegraph Herald, Davis said he regretted the series of events that led to the charges being filed .
“As I lend my full cooperation into the investigation of this matter by local law enforcement I will continue my long-standing commitment to the Dubuque Community Schools and the community at large,” Davis said. “I am grateful for the support my family and I have received as we work through this trying time.”
Davis is an attorney in private practice with the Locher & Locher law firm. Prior to beginning his law practice he was a CPA with McGladrey & Pullen and with Deloitte & Touche.
He has taught accounting, auditing, tax and business law courses in the Clarke University TimeSaver program since 1998 and is on the board of directors of Western Dubuque Biodiesel, LLC.
Davis has been elected twice to the Dubuque Community School Board.
He unsuccessfully ran for Dubuque City Council in 2011.
