Los Angeles City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana is now dealing with a DUI arrest, which is surprising to many people in the L.A community. Some say that the man is the most powerful non-elected official in the city. He oversees the city's $7 billion budget and is paid approximately $220,000, according to L.A List.
A California Highway Patrol officer pulled over Mr. Santana last Thursday in Covina after he was seen traveling at high speeds. A CHP spokesman later said that the man failed a field sobriety test and that he had submitted himself to a blood-alcohol test, but that the test results are not being disclosed to the public.
