HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A city councilman in Alabama has been accused of driving under the influence.

News outlets report Madison County Jail records show 57-year-old Will Culver was booked into the jail early Sunday morning on a DUI charge. Culver represents Huntsville’s District 5.

Culver is also charged with driving on the wrong side of the road, failure to signal and improper lane change/usage.

He is a former Huntsville police officer and chief city magistrate. He was elected to the council in 2008.

WAFF-TV reports that Culver’s attorney George Flowers appeared in court Monday to confirm that Culver understood his charges and would come to court. He didn’t comment on the case to the station.

All municipal court judges have been recused from the case to prevent a conflict of interest.
