LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Little Rock city director has apologized after he was arrested for drunken driving, saying he regrets his actions and will work to repair his reputation.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1IpQNpR ) reports Ken Richardson wrote an apology letter to the mayor and other city directors on Monday.

A police officer says he pulled over Richardson on Saturday after seeing his vehicle swerving and switching lanes without using a signal. The officer says that when Richardson pulled into a fast food restaurant’s parking lot, he ran over shrubbery in the process.

Authorities say Richardson failed a sobriety test after nearly falling twice. A preliminary Breathalyzer test showed his blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.

In his letter, Richardson asked for forgiveness and patience from city officials.
