ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Alpharetta Councilmember Michael Cross is still awaiting a court hearing following his arrest for DUI driving Feb. 23.
Unlike typical DUI charges, because Cross is a sitting councilmember, the city passed the case over to Fulton County to keep as much impartiality as possible.
"Effectively, we don't have anything to do with it," said Alpharetta Public Safety Spokesman George Gordon. "And that's the way it should be."
There is no court date set yet, said county Solicitor General Carmen D. Smith, as judges set the hearing calendar. Cross' case is to be heard by Judge Patsy Porter.
Cross was pulled over Feb. 23 after police say he was driving erratically, possibly drunk. He refused to take part in sobriety tests. He was arrested for DUI.
Cross maintains his innocence and that the officer made a mistake.
He was successful in keeping his driver's license after an initial ruling stated irregularities were seen after proper arrest protocol was not followed.
The first-term councilmember was elected in November 2011 and took office Jan. 1, 2012. He is an attorney by trade and is the council liaison to finance.
