by Staff Reports
The case of Blake Brown -- the former Boone Public Works Department director charged with unlawful possession or activation of a blue light -- last week was continued to a new court date of Jan. 28, 2014, according to the Watauga County Clerk of Court's office.
Brown, 57, of Evergreen Drive in Boone, was charged with the misdemeanor last month after a woman reported she was stopped Nov. 7 on Deerfield Road by a man in a vehicle displaying a blue light.
Brown retired from his position with the town of Boone on Dec. 1 after 28 years of service.
