Darkness to Light official charged with DUI

Matthew Grayson, Darkness to Light director of operations, was charged with DUI on Saturday in Mount Pleasant, according to a police report posted at Mount Pleasant Patch.

Police said Grayson appeared asleep at the wheel in his truck at about 2:30 a.m. at a traffic light on U.S. 17 North at Houston Northcutt Boulevard, the report states.

A police spokesman said late Wednesday afternoon that the records office was closed and a copy of the report was not available.

Jolie B. Logan, president and CEO of Darkness to Light, said in a prepared statement: “Our thoughts are with Matt and his family during this time. We respect all driving safety laws and encourage all citizens to do likewise.

“This is now a private legal matter for one of our employees and we support his efforts for privacy at this time,” Logan said.

Before joining Darkness to Light at the beginning of the year, Grayson worked for more than a decade in real estate development, and most recently he was vice president at Blackrobe Capital. He has more than 20 years of experience in business management, development, finance and operations. He succeeded Logan as director of operations.

After Grayson, 42, failed three different field sobriety tests, he was arrsted and charged with DUI, according to the report, which says he also was given a breathalyzer test that showed a reading of 0.14, the report states. The legal limit is 0.08.

He posted a $1,200 bond and was released, Patch reported. Grayson is due in court Jan. 2, 2013.

Darkness to Light, headquartered in Charleston, is a nationally recognized organization that works to prevent sex abuse of children.
