Suspended Logan Mayor arrested after allegedly crashing car while drink driving

Suspended Logan Mayor Luke Smith has reportedly spent the night behind bars.

Newscorp reports he was arrested after crashing his car in Logan last night, and allegedly blowing an alcohol limit of 0.139.

It’s believed the Local Government Minister Stirling Hinchliffe was planning to sack the entire Logan City Council today and bring in an administrator.


It comes not even a week after Mr Smith and seven other councillors were charged by the Crime and Corruption Commission following a major investigation into the Logan Council.

The corruption watchdog will allege the councillors’ were involved in causing a detriment to the former CEO Sharon Kelsey.

Mr Smith was also charged with interfering in a recruitment process and commencing a dishonest probation process.
