NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The director of the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness has returned to his duties following his arrest on a drunken driving charge. WGNO-TV reports that Collin Arnold is back on the job this week after completing a 60-day suspension after being arrested in January. Arnold pleaded not guilty. Authorities said Arnold was driving a city-owned vehicle that hit another vehicle. Police say he displayed signs of being intoxicated, and refused a breathalyzer test. His next court appearance is set for April 26.
