Maxine Fisher is an administrator for the town of Valley Brook. Melvin Fisher also did not return calls seeking comment.

Fisher and another man were arrested on Labor Day last year after a state trooper pulled over the former police chief on suspicion of drunken driving.

Court records show that troopers searching the 2000 Cadillac Escalade Fisher was driving found 20 grams of methamphetamine, an ounce of marijuana, a “large” crack rock, digital scales, four Ecstasy tablets, and numerous pills that have yet to be identified by authorities.

A trooper searching Fisher — who had been Valley Brook's police chief for more than 20 years before his arrest — also found a butane torch lighter in the former lawman's pockets and more than $600 in cash, court records show. He was suspended after his arrest and later fired.

Valley Brook, a town less than a square mile in size that is known for its topless bars, is east of Interstate 35 near SE 59 and S Eastern Avenue.
