Rochester Deputy Mayor Leonard Redon, who's accused of drunk driving, was scheduled to appear in Rochester City Court Tuesday morning but his case was adjourned until Thursday.

State police say they pulled Redon over on Route 490 near South Clinton Avenue last month and charged him with DWI, speeding and having an expired inspection. After the arrest, News10NBC learned he gave his resignation to Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, but she did not accept it. Redon returned to work the following week.

Redon's attorney says his client's recent diabetes diagnosis should be taken in consideration. His attorney says people with diabetes produce a chemical that could throw off Breathalyzer tests.
