Davenport supervisor charged with DWI

``There was no reason to ask me to submit to that,’’ Valente said. “We’re at an age when we’re losing so many civil liberties.”

As a result of his refusal, his driver’s license was taken away, a penalty Valente said was greater than if he had taken the breath test and failed.

“I’m walking a little bit more,” he said.

On Tuesday, Davenport Town Judge Ron Menhennett said he couldn’t comment on the case.

According to Valente, who sign’s Menhennett’s paychecks, the judge said Sunday that he would recuse himself from the case.

Valente said the county district attorney will need to decide whether to prosecute the case.
