Ironton police have charged a Lawrence County mayor with D-U-I.

Police arrested 43-year-old Hanging Rock Mayor Christopher Davidson early Sunday morning.

Authorities say they detected a strong odor of alcohol and his speech seemed to be slurred.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says they were called to help the Ironton Police check on a suspicious car parked on Mimosa Lane about 1:40 am.

Davidson pleaded not guilty to the charge Monday.

The court scheduled a pre-trial for Thursday.

Davidson is serving his third term as mayor.
