SIMI VALLEY (AP) — Authorities say a Simi Valley councilman has been arrested for investigation of driving under the influence.

The Ventura County Star reported Sunday ( that 49-year-old city councilman Steve Sojka was arrested March 12 by police in El Segundo.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's department records show Sojka's bail was set at $5,000 and he was released eight hours after his arrest.

Sojka's lawyer George Bird says the councilman's conduct was not related to his work as an elected official. Bird declined to comment on the allegations because he has not yet received police reports.

Soijka is charged with a misdemeanor. He is due to appear in court June 17.

Sojka has served as a councilmember in the Ventura County city since 1998.
