Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed will call a jail cell home for the next 10 days.
CLEVELAND - The mayor's office confirms that Cleveland city councilman Zack Reed did get special treatment in jail following his recent OVI arrest.
A jail supervisor "did provide treatment outside of protocol for councilman Zack Reed at the city jail following his arrest," said the mayor's office.
Reportedly, a jail supervisor let Reed use a city phone and allowed the councilman to remove and use his personal cellphone.
Whether the conduct rises to the level of an administrative hearing and disciplinary action is under review by Commissioner David Carroll.
If warranted, a hearing will take place next week, city hall said.
Reed's lawyer Anthony Jordan said, " I read the statement coming out of the mayor's office. There is no indication from there or anywhere else that my client requested any special treatment," Jordan said outside his office. He continued, "If there was something that was done out of the ordinary it sounds like an administrative issue within the city."
Reed, 51, was pulled over by police shortly before 2 a.m. last Tuesday near East Ninth Street and Rockwell Avenue on suspicion of drunken driving.
