FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A Flint city councilman has been ordered to spend 30 days in the Genesee County jail for impaired driving after crashing his car into a highway guardrail.

The Flint Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2m3YyPp ) that 43-year-old Wantwaz Davis was sentenced Friday. He also received a year’s probation and must submit to random drug and alcohol testing and enroll in a substance abuse program.

The newspaper reports that Davis initially told authorities on Sept. 3 that he crashed after being chased by a man waving a gun in another vehicle.

Davis pleaded guilty last month to a reduced charge of operating while impaired by liquor.

A court-ordered drug and alcohol test showed positive in February for THC, the active ingredient of marijuana. Davis told the judge that he is a medical marijuana user.
