The Star Tribune reports John Brady was arrested Saturday afternoon after reportedly being seen driving erratically on Interstate 94 in south Minneapolis.

The 61-year-old mayor was on his way to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where he was to leave on an official trip to China. He eventually did fly there.

Brady's attorney, Calvin Johnson, says Brady apologizes for the inconvenience the event may cause, but he remains committed to leading Mankato.

Golden Valley police allege Brady refused to stop while officers pursued his car and he rear-ended another vehicle. They also claim he had an open container of alcohol.

Brady is up for re-election in November.
