Former Jacksonville Mayor Arrested for Suspected DWI

Former Jacksonville Mayor Kenneth Durrett has been arrested and charged with DWI.

The 37-year-old Durrett was arrested Saturday night after a traffic stop.  The DPS says sheriff's deputies noticed his vehicle weaving on Highway 69 just north of Jacksonville.

Durrett refused a breathalyzer test, was arrested and later posted bond. 

He was Jacksonville mayor from 2001 until last year. He also ran for State Representative District 11 in 2002, but withdrew before the election.  Kenneth Durrett's father is Larry Durrett, who is running for that same state house seat in tomorrow's election.
