Flint City Councilman Eric Mays rests his case in drunken driving trial, closing arguments to be heard later this month

Posted: Updated:
FLINT (WJRT) - (06/12/14) - Flint City Councilman Eric Mays recalled two police officers, for cross examination again, during his drunken driving trial, Thursday.

Then he rested his case.

Jurors will hear closing arguments and get instructions, Jun. 26.

All of Thursday's testimony was taken out of the presence of the jury. Jurors didn't even make it into the courtroom until it was time for the judge to tell them they were done for the day.
Mays declined to testify himself, he said, because he doesn't trust the 68th District Court Judge Nathaniel Perry or special prosecutor Michael Gildner to be fair.

Mays is facing charges for a drunken driving and drug possession arrest in November.

Police allege he was found outside a car, facing the wrong way on I-475, damaged and with damaged and missing tires. He's also charged with not reporting the crash, not having proof of insurance and refusing to be finger printed.

Perry dismissed witnesses Mays wanted to call and said what Mays wanted them to talk about was irrelevant.

"I've heard some untruthful testimony and I see a lacking of evidence," said Mays, after the hearing. "That's what I'm going to hang my hat on. That they can dissect which police are telling the truth and which ones are not. Nobody's ever seen me driving."
