GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - A Guntersville City Councilman was arrested on a DUI charge last Thursday.

District 5 Councilman Donald Myers was booked on the Driving Under the Influence charge by ALEA Troopers at 5:25 p.m. on May 27.

ALEA Troopers stopped a 2009 Ford F-150 for failure to signal and change lanes without proper signal at approximately 4:40 p.m. that day. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Myers.

Myers was arrested on the following charges:

  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Open Container

He was transported to the Marshall County Jail in Guntersville, with bond set at $1,500.
