A councilman in Huntsville, Alabama was arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Records show that 57-year-old councilman Will Culver was also charged with Driving on the Wrong Side of the Road, Failure to Signal, and Improper Lane Change. The Huntsville Police Department has been slow to release details about the arrest, including Culver's alleged blood-alcohol level, saying the evidence has yet to be presented in court.
