ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Former Albuquerque City Councilor Michael Cook who was found not guilty last week of drunken driving got his drivers license back Friday.
Lapel camera video showed him struggling during a field sobriety test after an Albuquerque Police Department officer stopped him last April.
He also blew 0.10 on a Breathalyzer test exceeding the 0.08 level for presumed intoxication under state law.
But a Metropolitan Court judge found him not guilty because of a technical legal issue involving probable cause.
His lawyer, David Serna, says Cook got his license back Friday and insisted again his client was a victim of an overzealous police officer.
Cook resigned from the city council the day after his arrest.
