A Westminster city councilman was released from jail Tuesday after being arrested for a second time on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Councilman Andy Quach, once seen as an up-and-coming politician in Orange County, crashed his 2003 Mercedes-Benz into a metal security gate at the Cinnamon Creek Apartments at 15123 Brookhurst St. in Westminster on Monday morning, according to the city’s police department.
Quach, 42, was detained by residents of the complex until police arrived, Westminster Police Commander Dan Schoonmaker said in a statement.
Westminster officers said they immediately identified the driver as Quach and requested the case be handled by the California Highway Patrol due to the potential for conflict of interest.
