FLINT, Mich. (AP) -- A Flint city councilman is being held in the city lockup on suspicion of drunken driving and drug possession.

Police Chief James Tolbert tells The Flint Journal that Eric Bradford Mays was arrested for operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and possession of marijuana.

Mays was arrested about 2:50 a.m. Saturday on Interstate 475 by police investigating a traffic accident. Police say Mays was trying to change a flat when officers arrived.

The Associated Press left a voicemail Saturday at a number listed under Mays' name.

The 55-year-old Mays was elected in November.

He served a year of probation after pleading guilty in 1987 to felonious assault. In that case, Mays has said a man had been threatening his life before Mays threatened him with a gun.
