Rochester deputy mayor charged with DWI 

Rochester Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon was stopped on I-490 last night and charged with speeding and driving while intoxicated, according to a press release from the city administration.

Redon informed Mayor Lovely Warren at approximately 1 a.m., the press release says. And this morning, Warren and Redon met to discuss "his lapse in judgment and possible resignation," it says. The press release mentions an unspecified "newly diagnosed medical condition which may have affected his decision-making."

Redon isn't resigning. The press release says that Warren and Redon decided that Redon should use several of his personal days to seek counseling from his doctor. Redon does not have a history of alcoholism, the press release says, and has never been arrested for DWI before.

"While I am very disappointed in this turn of events and the Deputy Mayor's lapse in judgment, I have accepted his apology," Warren says in the release. "Leonard Redon is a valued member of my team who is doing good work on behalf of the people of Rochester. I know he is sincerely regretful for the embarrassment he has caused for the city, for me, and for himself, and will take steps to assure that it never happens again."
