Huntsville District 5 council member, Will Culver, was arrested and charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) of alcohol early Sunday morning according to the Madison County Jail website.

Records show that 57-year-old Culver was also charged with driving on the wrong side of the road, failure to use turn signals and improper lane usage.

He was booked into the Madison County Jail at 2:26 a.m. He was released around 2 p.m on Sunday.

 WAAY 31 reached out to councilman Bill Kling who told us he could not talk today.

We also called the city's communications director Kelly Schrimsher to get a response on Councilman Culver's arrest, but have not heard back from her.

WAAY 31 some digging to learn more about Culver's background. He represents District 5 in West Huntsville.

He was first elected to City Council in 2008 according to the city's website. Before working as a chief magistrate of municipal court, he was a Huntsville police officer.

He was one of the first drug abuse resistance education (D.A.R.E) officers in the state of Alabama.

Outside of serving on the council, Culver was formerly the director of criminal justice studies at Calhoun Community College and is an adjunct professor of criminal justice studies at Alabama A&M University.

WAAY 31 reached out to Culver but he didn't answer our phone calls. 

A city spokeswoman would only confirm that Culver was arrested and offered no other comment on the case.
