NEW ORLEANS: A New Orleans City Council member is facing a drunk driving charge for the third time after an arrest early Monday.
News outlets in New Orleans say jail records and a police report show that Jared Brossett, 39, is facing a driving while intoxicated charge after police found him asleep in a vehicle with the engine running.
Brossett currently represents a New Orleans City Council district and is running for a citywide at-large council seat in Novembers election.
Brossett was arrested in June of 2020 after he crashed a city-owned SUV.He publicly apologized and entered a diversion program to avoid prosecution in that case.He also entered into a payment plan to reimburse the city for the heavily damaged SUV.
In 2006, Brossett faced a DWI charge in Florida.He eventually pleaded no contest to a charge of reckless driving in that case, according to The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate.
A message seeking comment from Brossett’s campaign spokesman was not immediately returned Monday.
