COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Covington City Commissioner Steven Frank was arrested early Saturday morning for driving under the influence.

Police say the 55-year-old was pulled over for disregarding a stop sign and then taken into custody after it was discovered he had been drinking.

Frank was booked into the Kenton County Detention Center just before 4:30 a.m. He'll head before a judge for his arraignment Monday morning.

Frank was released from jail Saturday afternoon, and posted a note on his Facebook page that read:

"All; I made a seriously bad error in judgment last night and was pulled over and had to spend the night, courtesy of Covington's finest and Kenton County. No one is above the law and I will accept whatever judgment both the courts and you have about my transgression. Everybody involved was professional and courteous and I know that I have let many of you down, my wife most especially. Please, whatever you do, if you are at all close to being over the line; get a cab or call a friend. Mea Maxima Culpa."

Frank has held his commissioner position since January.
