CLINTON, S.C. (WSPA) — An Upstate official with a previous conviction for DUI is again charged with driving under the influence. 

Clinton City Council member Robbie Neal was arrested Saturday night by Clinton Police Department after a traffic stop on North Sloan Street. 

Neal was charged with driving under the influence, second offense. 

An arrest warrant says Neal has a prior conviction for DUI in the last 10 years. 

According to a police report, an officer on routine patrol stopped Neal for erratic driving. 

The officer reportedly saw her fail to completely stop at an intersection, drift across traffic lanes and later cross into the wrong lane. 

After the stop, the officer noted the odor of alcohol coming from inside the car and said she may have had one or two beers at home.

The report says she was unsteady on her feet and her speech “slurred and garbled.” 

After failing one test, she reportedly refused to continue with a field sobriety test.

Neal also refused a breathalyzer test at the jail. 

The report says she was convicted of DUI in 2013.

According to the city of Clinton’s website, she was elected in 2017 and represents Ward 3. 

Neal was given a $10,000 personal recognizance bond.
