A postal worker who Grand Forks police say was driving a delivery truck while drunk has been placed on unpaid leave, pending a resolution to his case, U.S. Postal Service spokesman Pete Nowacki said Monday.


Nowacki said Richard Leo Kuntz, 65, could be subject to discipline, considering that USPS policy prohibits on-duty employees from drinking alcohol or being intoxicated.
