Detroit councilman's DUI classified 'super drunk'

Posted: Updated:
CITY OF DETROIT -  
More details are emerging about the DUI arrest of Detroit City Councilman Scott Benson.

Benson was classified as "super drunk" when police found him slumped over the wheel of his car in June.

During Benson's arraignment on Thursday, records show Benson had a blood alcohol content of .244.

That is more than three times the legal limit. And he could face stiffer penalties under Michigan's super drunk law.

Benson is still continuing with his duties on the city council - he's due back in court Sept. 5.
