Video has surfaced of the scene after New Orleans City Councilman Jared Brossett allegedly crashed his city issued vehicle while driving drunk Sunday morning.
A resident shared the video with NOLA.com.
It shows the aftermath of the crash in which Brossett allegedly lost control of his city owned vehicle in the 2400 block of Elysian Fields Avenue off the I-10.
Police jailed Brossett briefly for driving while intoxicated and reckless driving.
He can be heard on the video saying, "We are trying to resolve the issue."
The man shooting the video says repeatedly that Brossett appears to be drunk.
A witness told NOLA.com that Brossett crossed the neutral ground before hitting the other vehicle.
The other driver could be seen on the ground, his condition was not clear.
