Police say a Lorain city councilman was arrested for drunk driving, after losing control of his van on his own street.
Councilman Dennis Flores was arrested on Jan. 2 around 9:30 p.m. Officers were called to 903 W. 18th Street, after Flores got his van stuck on his neighbor's tree lawn.
When officers arrived and tried talking to Flores, they say his speech was slurred and his eyes were red and watery. Officers also say they smelled alcohol.
Officers say after Flores failed several field sobriety tests, he was placed under arrest for failure to control and operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Flores was also driving with a suspended license.
Flores, 58, was elected in 2011 to represent Lorain's Ward 2, which includes downtown and the central part of the city.
