Kansas City, MO - The Lawrence city prosecutor has dropped the driving under the influence charge against Kansas City councilman and mayoral candidate Quinton Lucas, according to court documents.

Lucas was arrested October 18, 2018 in downtown Lawrence on suspicion of DUI.  

Lucas has maintained that he did the right thing that night after drinking at a KU event, by waiting in his car until he could drive safely.  He says he never tried to drive the car.

“It is a fair result and one that we expected, and I am proud that I made the responsible choice not to drive that night,” Lucas said in a statement.

In the same statement, Lucas says he has donated $1,000 to Legal Aid to 'to help broaden access to the basic rights citizens are entitled to under law'.
