ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Alpharetta City Councilman Michael Cross is in legal trouble, charged with DUI, endangering the life of a child and improper safety restraints for a child.

Alpharetta Police arrested Cross Saturday after receiving a 911 call from a motorist who reported he was driving erratically, swerving in and out of his lane.

According to the police report, the arresting officer said he noticed a strong odor of alcohol when he pulled over the councilman. The incident was recorded on the camera in the officer's patrol car.

According to the incident report, Cross told the officer he'd had a beer several hours earlier but claimed that he was not intoxicated. Police say Cross refused a breathalyzer test.

Cross did appear at Monday's normally scheduled city council meeting. He did not address his arrest or if he plans to resign from office.
