Richmond City Councilman Martin Jewell Arrested For DUI

Comments (0)

On October 23, Richmond City Councilman E. Martin Jewell was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence, according to Richmond Police.


Jewell’s arrest, which took place at approximately 1:30 a.m., is the most recent of a few months of problems for the 5th District representative. Since being elected in 2004, Jewel had enjoyed a mostly scandal-free career. But that came to an end with his nephew being charged in a shooting on the Virginia Union University campus. No one died, but one student was injured. His nephew’s arrest has since been a fixture in political discussion around him.


No details about Jewell’s arrest were released, but he was released on $500 bond, which likely means it was a misdemeanor charge.


When Jewell was arrested, he was within a mile of his home.
