Mayor Lowe pleads not guilty to DUI charges

By

Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe has entered a not-guilty plea for his DUI charges, according to the Gainesville Sun.

Lowe was arrested March 21 after he crashed his car early that morning. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, he blew a .061 and .069 on a blood alcohol content test, which was administered about four hours after the crash. Given the time frame, this could mean he was above the legal limit at the time of the crash.

Lowe was released from jail on his own recognizance later that afternoon. He is set to appear in court on April 11 for his arraignment.

Attorney General Tells Orlando’s Gays: ‘We Stand With You’

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is visiting Orlando to meet with prosecutors, first responders and families of the victims of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history. The trip Tuesday comes as the Justice Department continues investigating the June 12 massacre at the Pulse nightclub, in which 49 people died and dozens were wounded. Federal investigators who have conducted hundreds of interviews haven't ruled out charges against others in connection with the shooting and say they're still trying to determine why Omar Mateen, who died in a gun battle with police, picked as his target a popular gay nightclub.
