CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Prospective jurors have been sworn in for the drunk driving trial of Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed. Now, jury selection begins. Half of potential jurors said they have seen TV coverage of Reed's case.

Reed was arrested on March 5 at the intersection of East 9th and Rockwell Avenue after he failed to stop at a red light and made an improper turn. He refused to take a breath test.

Reed is facing four charges, with the most serious being drunk driving. The other charges are minor traffic offenses.

Reed has no plans on resigning and says he has important work to do in his ward, Ward 2. He refuses to discuss specifics about the night he was arrested.
