Texas: Crystal City Mayor facing recall now arrested for resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and possession of a controlled substance
The saga of Crystal City's recall is getting more interesting, as Mayor Ricardo Lopez was arrested after a minor scuffle at the council meeting and then charged with resisting arrest and hindering proceedings by disorderly conduct. After he was arrested, Lopez was found to have a forbidden substance, which the sheriff said may have been a Vicodin in the wrong container. Now, it is unclear if the council will have enough members to meet the quorum requirement to actually hold a meeting.
