    WASHINGTON COUNTY, Iowa - The Keokuk County Sheriff once charged with drunk driving announced his plans to run for re-election this fall.

    The attorney for Sheriff Jeff Shipley tells the Des Moines Register that Shipley will stay in his position and run for re-election.

    A state trooper arrested Shipley for an OWI last July in Sigourney, but yesterday, the Washington County attorney, who handled the case, said he didn't have enough evidence to proceed with the case.

    Shipley refused to take a blood alcohol test after the trooper pulled him over.
