City Councilman Takes Power From the People
Today's O.C. Register reports that Westminster city councilman Andy Tuan Ngoc Quach was arrested for DUI after he wrapped his S550 Mercedes Benz around an electric pole just after midnight this morning. Although the councilman was apparently unhurt, the crash knocked out power to 300 homes until this afternoon.
"I think I must have nodded off and hit the pole," he was quoted by the Register. "I wish it's something I can undo, but I can't. We're all human. As far as I'm concerned, it will never happen again."
