Aquinnah selectmen met briefly in executive session with their police chief Randhi Belain Wednesday morning as a personnel matter, according to town administrator Jeffrey Madison. No action was taken and the selectmen do not plan to issue a formal statement, Mr. Madison said.

“The board of selectmen completely supports Chief Belain for continued employment, end of story,” said town administrator Jeffrey Madison.

The executive session came on the heels of a story that ran in the Martha’s Vineyard Times over the weekend about an evening in late March. According to the newspaper, Chief Belain was off duty and intoxicated after celebrating his birthday. A taxi dropped him off at the wrong house in Vineyard Haven and the homeowners called 911. The story was based on a memorandum from the Tisbury police, according to the newspaper. No charges were filed in connection with the matter. The story generated widespread comment on social media.
