UNION SPRINGS, AL (WSFA) - The mayor of Union Springs is scheduled for a court appearance today for DUI charges and obstructing government operations.

Officers arrested John McGowan in December for failing a sobriety test.

McGowan denies any wrongdoing and told reporters that he simply was called to a traffic stop by his step-daughter who was getting pulled over at the time.
