Councilman Calhoun, who is charged with DUI, releases a statement
Montgomery City Councilman C.C. Calhoun is not denying that he drove while under the influence early Friday morning, but it is not clear what his legal strategy will be going forward.
Calhoun was charged with DUI early Friday, but unfortunately, attempts to reach Calhoun for comment were not successful Friday evening.
His attorney did, however, release the following statement to the media late Friday evening and past press time. Here it is in its entirety:
“First and foremost, I want to thank the Montgomery Police Department for the professionalism involving my traffic stop this morning. I respect the law and I am satisfied that this matter will continue to be handled professionally going forward and will proceed for me in the same matter as any citizen.
“I would also like to thank all of my supporters and the citizens of District Five who have expressed support for my family and me at this time. I consider it an honor to serve on the City Council of this great city and sincerely apologize for any action on my part that in anyway distracts from all the hard work and progress so many people have worked so hard to make a reality.
“Additionally, I look forward to having this matter finally resolved in the best interest of my family, supporters and the citizens of the City of Montgomery. ”
