Congressman supports district director

WASHINGTON, D.C. - First District Congressman Jeff Fortenberry has issued a statement in support of his district director, who was arrested early this (Wednesday) morning in Norfolk for driving under the influence and refusal to submit to a chemical test. Fortenberry calls Josh Moenning a (quote) “good man,” and says Moenning has his full support as he works through this with his family and the community. Moenning was arrested after police were called to the 200 block of South 10th Street at 1:15 this morning to the report of a vehicle parked in the middle of the road for an extended period of time. Field sobriety and preliminary breath tests were conducted, and Moenning was taken to the Norfolk City Jail where Police Captain Michael Bauer says he refused a chemical test. Moenning has apologized for the incident, and says he will let it work its way through the legal system, accepting the consequences. Moenning is a Norfolk city councilman, elected in November to represent the Third Ward.
