A well-known name in Albemarle politics has been charged with driving drunk. Cynthia Neff was arrested Sunday morning for driving under the influence.
Albemarle police say an officer pulled her over after he observed her driving erratically along Route 29.
Neff has run for supervisor before and is the person who put up her house as collateral to get supervisor Chris Dumler out of jail this month following a forcible sodomy charge.
Neff will be in court on November 5.
