Warmath's charges of public drunkenness dropped

  Email   Print

It was announced Wednesday morning that charges of alleged public intoxication against former Ward 6 City Councilor Kathy Warmath have been dropped.

Warmath resigned from her city council seat in February, after serving Ward 6 for 23 years. The resignation, which came through her attorney, Jack Lowery, followed a Feb. 2 incident at Lebanon City Hall. Warmath was arrested in the parking lot after a regular called meeting for public drunkenness; however, Warmath later explained that she was not intoxicated and instead had an abnormal reaction to prescription medication.

"Unfortunately, I had an abnormal reaction to the medication. Because of this I find it necessary to apologize to my fellow city council members, the people of my district, and the people of the City of Lebanon," she stated.

A representative of Lowery's office said a follow-up statement regarding the charges being dropped is not expected - the case is simply dismissed.
