PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A man who makes his living examining the law for Pender County has been charged for breaking it.

Pender County's attorney, Carl Woodrow Thurman III, was arrested early Sunday morning in connection to driving while impaired.

Thurman was pulled over in Brunswick County and blew over a .08 when he was stopped while driving around 2:30 a.m.

Thurman's license has been revoked for the next 30 days, which is standard procedure for DWI charges. His next court date is scheduled for April 28.

County Manager Mickey Duval said he and the board are aware of the arrest and have no further comment at this point.

Calls to Thurman have not been returned. He serves as legal counsel for Pender County and the board of commissioners.
