FULTONDALE, Ala. (AP) - A Fultondale city councilman was charged earlier this year with driving under the influence, four years after he was removed from the council after being arrested for the same crime.

AL.com (https://bit.ly/1SKF9JI ) reported Monday that 60-year-old Gregory L. Morris was arrested on U.S. Highway 280 in Shelby County on May 21. According to court records, Morris was also charged with resisting arrest.

Morris apologized in a statement and says he is taking responsibility for his actions.

Morris was arrested in Mountain Brook in December 2010 and charged with driving under the influence. He was not prosecuted after he received treatment.

After that case, Morris missed 90 consecutive days of council duties and was removed from his position by state law.

In 2012, Morris won his seat back in an election.
