Albuquerque City Councilor Gets DWI

Albuquerque City Councilor Gets DWI

The ABQ Journal reported that Michael Cook, the Albuquerque City Councilor, is resigning after his arrest on suspicion of DWI last night. It was determined that a local police officer stopped Cook near 2500 block of San Pedro NE. After Cook was administered several field sobriety tests, he was taken to the Metropolitan Detention. He received charges for DWI, violating traffic laws, and driving with no license plates and registration forms. It was noted that he was released from jail earlier this morning.

Gerges Scott,  a public relations agent, was ordered by Cook to contact the ABQ Journal on his behalf.  According to Scott’s message, Cook stated: “I am resigning my position as the District 7 City Councilor effective today…I am a man that believes in personal responsibility and accountability…I do not want to distract any attention from the needs or goals of the city…I will be with my family and friends as I move past this regrettable incident in my life.” The journal has attempted to contact Cook, by leaving him a voice mail message, but he has not communicated back with them.

If you have been arrested for driving drunk, contact an experienced and skilled New Mexico DWI attorney for legal assistance.
