Maybe he'll drive off the causeway
Last summer, after Mandeville Mayor Eddie Price was caught twice driving his city vehicle erratically after drinking, he reluctantly gave up the keys while he underwent treatment for substance abuse.
Now, after completing the 13-step program and finishing a final draft of a new vehicle policy, Price is back behind the wheel of the luxury Ford Expedition. The SUV now has city seals on both front doors, to comply with state law, but is still fitted with a "ghost plate" until the arrival of new public license plates.
