FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A Flint City Council member who recently got out of jail after serving 22 days for impaired driving is facing 90 more days behind bars after being convicted of disorderly conduct.

The Flint Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1PwRhAa ) that Eric Mays was found guilty Monday after testimony in the trial began last week.

Mays contended that the case against him was politically motivated.

The case stemmed from his removal by police from a July council meeting. Sentencing is expected to take place in March.

Mays was convicted in November in the impaired driving case after representing himself. He’s a well-known activist in Flint, especially during the city’s crisis with lead-tainted water.
