LORAIN -- Mayor Megan Flanigan of Grafton was arrested on suspicion of OVI Saturday morning.

Just after 3 a.m., Grafton Police found a damaged fire hydrant on Fox Run Drive. While looking at the hydrant, one officer found a license plate.

The plate came back to Mayor Megan Flanigan. 

That's when Grafton police called the Lorain County Sheriff's Office to help. 

Once at the scene, deputies found a heavily damaged white SUV in the road. 

While police were running the license plate, Flanigan returned to the scene. 

Police and deputies gave several field sobriety tests after smelling a strong odor of alcohol on Flanigan. 

She was then taken to Lorain County Jail for a Breathalyzer test.

Flanigan was arrested for OVI, reasonable control and failure to stop after an accident.
