Update: Councilman "Another Round!" Reed has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for drunken driving.

19 Action News reports that Reed will spend 10 days in jail, beginning Sept. 25, but that the other 70 will be deferred until after a November hearing.

Our dear councilman will also be assigned "party plates," an ignition interlock, a $1500 fine, and a two-year probation.

Reports are trickling in that Cleveland's very own Councilman Zack Reed has been found guilty of driving while intoxicated.

Surprise, surprise.

To catch you up to speed, Councilman "Another Round!" Reed was arrested back in March after he blew through a stop light and made an improper turn. This was his third- yes, third- OVI arrest.

Reed is now awaiting his sentence which is slated to take place on September 5. He could face up to six months in prison. Until then he remains free on bond.

Since his court appearance earlier today, Reed has remained adamant that he has no plans of resigning- his seat, that is- as there is much work to be done.

Clearly.
