Robert Rizzo A No-Show At DUI Hearing

Posted: Updated:


WESTMINSTER -- Disgraced former Bell city manager, Robert Rizzo, is facing more legal trouble -- this time for driving under the influence.

Rizzo, 56, who stepped down as the city manager of Bell after his nearly $800,000 salary was made public, was due in court in Westminster Thursday morning in connection with a drunk driving arrest.

Rizzo was arrested on March 6 for driving with a blood alcohol level of .28 -- more than three times the legal limit -- after someone called police saying that a man had crashed into a mailbox and drove into an alley in Huntington Beach where Rizzo has a home.
