Washington State Patrol arrested Tacoma City Councilman Ryan Mello for a DUI Saturday night.

WSP Spokesperson Guy Gill said Mello was pulled over for lane violations and voluntarily submitted to field sobriety tests after the trooper smelled alcohol on Mello's breath.

Mello did not identify himself as a councilman and cooperated throughout the process, said Gill.

The DUI charge will be filed through the Pierce County Prosecutor's Office.
