FLINT, Mich. (AP) A Flint city councilman arrested for suspicion of drunken driving and marijuana possession is resisting calls that he step down.

Eric Bradford Mays says he has no plans to resign the office he's held for about a month.

The 55-year-old Mays was arrested early on Nov. 30 on Interstate 475 by police investigating a traffic accident. Police say Mays was trying to change a flat when officers arrived.

Mays' attorney Frank Manley says his client has yet to be formally charged.

Voters elected Mays in November.

Flint's emergency manager, mayor and city council president asked him to resign Friday.

Mayor Dayne Walling said it's time for Mays "to make a responsible decision."
