DETROIT (AP) - A first-term Detroit City Council member has returned to work on a city committee after his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.
Scott Benson released a statement Monday before the start of the public health and safety committee meeting apologizing for "personal actions" that "took a front seat to more pressing issues facing the city."
The 44-year-old Benson spent a night in jail after his June 29 arrest in Southfield, just north of Detroit. He posted a $500 bond and was released June 30.
Benson missed City Council meetings last week.
The city-owned vehicle Benson was in has been returned to the city until the matter is resolved.
