Ex-mayor and Current Snohomish County Council Chair Arrested for DUI
Brian Sullivan, chairman of the Snohomish County Council, former Mukilteo mayor and a former state lawmaker, was arrested Thursday night for investigation of DUI in Mukilteo. The incident began when Mukilteo police received a 911 call at about 7:50 p.m. reporting a suspected drunk driver heading south on the Mukilteo Speedway. The caller said the vehicle was "all over the road." Officers responded and caught up with the suspected drunk driver after he turned right at Chennault Beach Road and stopped in front of a business. The driver, identified as Sullivan, smelled of alcohol and officers asked if he had been drinking. He said he had been and agreed to take a field sobriety test. After the tests were complete, officers placed him under arrest shortly after 8 p.m. Sullivan was brought back to the police station to undergo a breath test. The first one registered an alcohol level of .168 percent and the second one registered .161. Both were more than double the legal limit. Sullivan was released to a responsible adult who was not in the car with him and issued a citation. He had his first appearance in Snohomish County District Court on Friday afternoon.
