HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) - The city attorney was arrested for investigation of drunken driving after police spotted her driving the wrong way on a downtown street, officials said.
"It's been a hard day," said Jennifer McGrath, 37, who was elected in 2002.
McGrath was arrested shortly after midnight Wednesday, said Lt. Irwin Feuerstein, a spokesman for the Huntington Beach Police Department. She was booked into the city jail for investigation of misdemeanor drunken driving and was released on her own recognizance, he said.
The results of a blood test are pending, Feuerstein said.
McGrath declined to discuss the incident in detail but read from a statement in which she admitted making a mistake.
"I am taking responsibility for my actions and the consequences thereto," the statement said. "I deeply apologize for any embarrassment I have caused the city, my family or my friends, and I can assure all of you that this will never happen again."
Huntington Beach Mayor Dave Sullivan declined to comment on McGrath's arrest.
Egads....Did they have to find the ONE UNGOODLOOKING CHICK, in Huntington Beach???
"As a wife and mother of two children, its critical to her that our City is safe and our quality of life is protected".
Man! ya gotta be reeeeeeeeel drunk to drive down the wrong way in HB...
or anywhere for that matter!
I wonder what she plans to do after she's fired...
become a DUI attorney? LOL
The legacy of elected officials in Huntington Beach continues:
No party affiliation mentioned. Does that mean she's a Democrat?
My word, you have to be pretty snockered to be driving the wrong way on a city street. HB isn't that big a community, is it?
Thanks for the list.
HB does have a civic history, indeed.
I remember old Huntington Beach, before they revitalized it. I liked it better before. I used to eat at Wimpy's.
