Chairman of Devon Horse Show Charged With Public Drunkenness

The chairman of the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair was charged Tuesday with public drunkenness for an alleged incident at the horse show, Tredyffrin Township police said.

Wayne William Grafton, 67, of Unionville, was cited after causing a "physically offensive scene," police told the West Chester Daily Local.

The horse show runs May 26 through the end of this weekend.

Grafton has been involved with the show for more than three decades, and his wife, Marjorie, has been a competitor in the carriage division for several years, according to his biography on the horse show's website.

He took over as chairman in 2014.

The Daily Local reported that the citation issued by police said Grafton “did have glassy, bloodshot eyes, odor of alcoholic beverages."

It was unclear when his next court appearance would be. Online court records only indicated the case is active and awaiting a plea.
