Published: Thursday, July 18, 2013 at 05:44 PM.

The mayor agreed to take a Breathalyzer test, which is used to measure blood alcohol level, and registered 0.00 percent. Bettis also consented to a blood test, analyzed by the State Bureau of Investigation to determine whether he had alcohol or any other controlled substance in his system.

The blood test found no evidence of alcohol, but did find Benzodiazepines, a prescription psychoactive drug commonly used in treating anxiety, insomnia and seizures.
