GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - A Hall County supervisor has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and refusing a chemical test.

Grand Island police say 50-year-old Dave Ziola was taken into custody around 1:30 a.m. Sunday after he failed a breath test. Officers say his vehicle had been stuck in a snowdrift.

Ziola told Hastings television station KHAS that the situation is all a misunderstanding. He says he doesn’t think his blood alcohol was anywhere near the legal limit. Ziola also says he took all the tests the officers asked but that he may not have heard the request to take another, because his hearing has been affected by the flu.

Ziola’s been a supervisor for the past four years. He was beaten in his bid for re-election and will leave office soon.
