Rotary Club President Resigns

Posted By on Tue, Sep 13, 2011 at 3:26 PM

Memphis Rotary Club president John Coats has resigned, but a representative with the club would not comment on why Coats has stepped down.

Last month, Coats was arrested for a DUI when police found him asleep in the driver's seat of his car in a Walgreens parking lot. When officers arrived, Coats was revving the car's accelerator at a high RPM, and it appeared he'd fallen asleep with his foot fully depressing the pedal.

According to the Rotary representative, the club is entering a transitional period and have yet to name Coats' replacement.
