(WSB Radio) — Two Clayton County Commissioners have issued a statement in defense of one of their fellow commissioners who was arrested and charged with DUI Saturday.
Clayton County Commissioner Wole Ralph was arrested by Atlanta police around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
An officer saw a red Mustang “driving recklessly” out of a parking lot on the 1900 block of Metropolitan Parkway in Southwest Atlanta, Atlanta police spokesman Curtis Davenport said.
Officers stopped the vehicle and reported the driver refused to cooperate. After a brief struggle, Ralph was arrested.
Ralph was released from jail Saturday afternoon on $4,300 bond, a Clayton County spokeswoman said.
Ralph is charged with a DUI, obstruction, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane.
Clayton County commissioners Sonna Singleton and Gail Hambrick issued statements Sunday night backing Wole.
They said Wole has “been invaluable to us as we strive to improve the quality of life in our districts and our county.”
Ralph, 33, is vice president of the Clayton County Commission. He was elected to his first term at 26 and was the youngest county commissioner in Georgia, according to the county’s website
