Former Mayor Arrested
KIEL, Wis. (AP) – The former mayor of Sheboygan who has publicly battled problems with alcohol has been arrested on suspicion of driving drunk. Kiel police say Bob Ryan was pulled over shortly before midnight Sunday and was taken to a Manitowoc hospital for a blood draw and then to the Manitowoc County Jail. The Sheboygan Press (http://shebpr.es/13AFSrB ) says he was ticketed for first offense operating while intoxicated. Ryan has acknowledged his past troubles with alcohol. Following a recent court appearance on disorderly conduct charges, Ryan said he continues to work on staying sober. The former mayor was fined $770 for misdemeanor disorderly conduct less than two weeks ago. The charges were the result of a 2011 incident at an Elkhart Lake bar in which he was accused of groping a woman.
