According to the Traverse City Police Department, an officer saw a car traveling east on East Eighth Street near Woodmere Avenue when it crossed over the center line and proceeded to drive in the designated bike lane.

The officer stopped the car near the intersection of East Eighth Street and Rose Street.

According to the probable cause warrant, Estes "smelled of intoxicants and had watery, glassy eyes." The officer reported that Estes admitted to having one beer at his house earlier.

Estes reportedly failed several in-field sobriety tests and eventually blew a .120 BAC and was arrested for operating while intoxicated, first offense.

Estes, 63, was held at the Grand Traverse County Jail.

The mayor should have used the Rudy Tomjonovich defense. "If you don't like my driving, stay off the sidewalk."
