FLINT (WJRT) -
(05/30/14) - Flint City Councilman Eric Mays gave his opening statement, Friday, during his drunken driving trial.
It was followed by some courtroom drama.
The judge stopped the trial and ordered the jury to leave the courtroom after Mays asked John Billings if he was driving the car the night Mays was arrested for drunken driving and marijuana possession.
Police say the car was facing the wrong way on I-475 with four damaged tires, last November.
One police sergeant testified he and another officer followed gouge marks about 3 and a half miles from where they believe Mays crashed that night to where he was arrested.
