Bruce Township Clerk Susan Brockmann was sentenced today after pleading guilty to super drunk charges in March. 

A judge ordered Brockmann serve 25 hours of community service and serve 10 months probation.

Brockmann told Macomb County District Judge William Hackel II she drank wine and mixed drinks back on September 11 and her blood alcohol level was .20 when she took a breathalyzer test with Michigan State Police. A second test showed .18.

According to State Police, Brockmann was at the township hall at 3 a.m. when the building alarm went off. Officers arrived and that's when she reportedly backed her car into a State Police cruiser, causing minor damage. She was arrested but also tried to make a deal with officers to let her go home, and asked if they would drive her, according to police reports.

Her case created controversy because she did not reveal her arrest to voters before being re-elected to a third term in November. She was charged after the election because MSP was waiting for blood toxicology to be completed.
