The Mayor of Grand Island, Nebraska was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving on Saturday evening. Mayor Jay Vavricek was stopped after a local Nebraska citizen called in a tip about a drunk driver, with a vehicle description and license plate number that matched Vavricek’s.

Vavricek is awaiting the results of a blood test, but said in a statement that he was embarrassed by his own actions, and apologized ot his family, and the community. He also said he would take preventative action to be sure this incident did not repeat itself.

The Mayor has faced a tumultuous year in office, he was given a censure and a public reprimand by the city council, as they clashed over the resignation of a city administrator. He was also the target of a recall campaign, but the campaign organizer was unable to fulfill the signature requirements.

If convicted of the DUI, Vavricek faces a mandatory minimum of 7 days in jail, 6 months license revocation, a $500 fine, and other punishments.
