Huntington Beach Planning Commissioner Tim Ryan's court hearing on charges of drunk driving has been continued to July, pending further investigation by his attorney.
Ryan, a City Council candidate, was arrested Jan. 28 by Huntington Beach police and booked on two charges of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and having a blood alcohol content level above the legal limit, according to court records.
The Orange County district attorney's criminal complaint states that Ryan was driving with a 0.20 BAC level — more than two times the legal limit.
He was released on $10,000 bail. Ryan, a lawyer, pleaded not guilty to both charges May 2, court records show.
Huntington Beach police Capt. Russ Reinhart confirmed Ryan's arrest.
Ryan, who is hoping to land a seat on the council in November and ranks among the top fundraisers for the City Council race, also confirmed his arrest but deferred all questions to his attorney, Todd Landgren.
